It is not uncommon for a will to say that a particular person has the right to live in a home for that person`s life. This is called rent of life (or interest in life or life). Advice should always be s asked, because according to the text, the right to use the property may be extinguished if the tenant of the life no longer resides in the house. Alternatively, the tenant may have the right to use the house for the rest of his life, even if he does not reside in the house. This may allow the tenant to rent the house to someone else and recover the rent. If you think you can have a lifetime rent of all kinds, seek advice from a lawyer. The first type of life rental is that of a tenant who has a lease for the duration of his life. It appears that these leases, excluded from the RT Act 2010, may be subject to the Landlords and Tenants Act of 1899 (NSW). At the end of the apartment, the house is treated according to what is written in the will. A life interest could also be left as an investment, for example to generate income for the life of the spouse. What happens if the tenant abandons the tenant while he or she lives? What are the tax consequences of the early termination of an interest rate? TR 2006/14?

A Life Interest provides that real estate and other personal assets such as shares or money in a bank account are held for life for the benefit of a person. When an interest in life is granted in a home, the benefit is usually something like able to live in the house. When a life-shared contribution is granted in shares or a bank account, the benefits are interest or dividends of the asset. In order to create the interest of life, it is often necessary to “ser” the common tenancy agreement and encourage the spouses to keep the interest in their property as “common tenants”.
