Usufruct Information

By: Truwealth  11-11-2011

A usufruct is a personal servitude. It is a right to enjoy the property of another and to take the fruits but to leave such property intact. It may be granted for life or for a specified time or until a happening of a specific event but where granted for a specified time or until happening of a specific event it will terminate if the use of usufructuary dies before such time or before such event has happened.

As part of a estate planning excercise it is sometimes recommended that growth assets are transferred into a trust.
