Definition of SPRINGING USE,


SPRINGING USE,

estates. One to arise on a future event, when no
preceding estate is limited, and does not take effect in derogation of any
preceding interest. Example: a grant is made to A in fee, to the use of B in
fee, after the fourth of July; no use arises till the limited period. The use
in the mean time results to the grantor, who has a determinable fee. A
springing use differs from a resulting use, (q. v.) or a shifting use. (q. v.)
