Title 47 - Land and Land Titles
Chapter 821* - Land Titles


*Our peculiar statute against perpetuities was repealed by public acts of 1895, Ch. 249. The validity of a provision in a will is determined by the law in effect at the death of the testator. 71 C. 468; 74 C. 519; 80 C. 82; 81 C. 34. Effect of amendment to statute made in 1884. 83 C. 10. Republication of will after repeal of statute, takes provision out of its terms. 88 C. 286. Law of state where land lies determines as to its transmission. 178 U.S. 186.

Ordinarily, under an oral lease of a tenement in a building housing more than one family, the lessor neither impliedly warrants that the demised premises are in a reasonably safe condition nor impliedly undertakes to keep in reasonable repair the portion of the premises leased to and placed in the exclusive possession and control of the lessee. 150 C. 149. A promise to repair made to induce a person to become a tenant or made after the tenancy has commenced to induce the tenant to remain for a new or additional term is based on a sufficient consideration to give rise to a cause of action for negligence. Id., 418.

The right of a tenant to use the common stairway in a 3-family house could be found to be a property interest sufficient to form the basis for an action in nuisance. 22 CS 373. There is a bailment to tenant of personal property included in a lease; where bailee is unable to restore bailed property or returns it in damaged condition, there arises a presumption of negligence. 23 CS 504. Doctrine of liability for nuisance upon premises does not apply as between landlord and tenant. 24 CS 439.
