2005 Connecticut Code - Sec. 47-29. Right of entry on land by assignee of reversion.

      Sec. 47-29. Right of entry on land by assignee of reversion. When, after an estate in real estate has been created by grant or devise upon express condition, the reversion, before breach of the condition, becomes vested in any person other than the grantor or his heirs, that person shall, on breach of the condition, have the same right of entry upon the real estate and the same remedy for the breach, by entry, suit or otherwise, as the original grantor or those who legally represent him would have, if still owning the reversion.

      (1949 Rev., S. 7118; P.A. 79-602, S. 7.)

      History: P.A. 79-602 substituted "the" or "that" for "such" where appearing.

      A right of entry for condition broken was not assignable at common law; 31 C. 478; but is now by virtue of this section. 54 C. 62; 110 C. 270. Breach of condition may require reentry to revest title. 74 C. 636. Grantee of estate can avail himself only of breaches subsequent to conveyance to him. 76 C. 594. Grantee has no further rights than grantor. 84 C. 512. Deed construed to convey entire interest of grantor, including possibility of reverter. 110 C. 267.
