Life tenant

A person entitled to hold the legal estate (ownership rights) of real property for the duration of their life or the life of someone else, after which possession of the property goes back to the owner or a third party (a remainderman). A life tenant has most of the rights associated with the ownership of land such as the right to possess it or take profit from it, but cannot waste or dispose of it.
