Word of the Week:

Undivided Interest: 

A co-owner’s interest, giving him or her the right to possession of the whole property,

 rather than to a particular section of it.

Word of the Week:

Incorporeal Rights:

Rights in real property that do not involve physical possession of anything,

such as a dominant tenant’s right to use the servient tenant’s land-an easement. 

An easement appurtenant is an incorporeal hereditament, because it is inheritable,

but an easement in gross is merely an incorporeal right, because it is not inheritable.


Word of the Week:

Writ of Possession:

a court order issued after an unlawful detainer action, informing

 the tenant that he or she must vacate the landlord’s property

 within a specified period or be forcibly removed by the sheriff.
