2016 New Jersey Revised Statutes
Title 46 - Property
Section 46:2F-11 - Applicability Of C.46:2f-9 Through C.46:2f-11 To Property Interests, Powers Of Appointment
46:2F-11. Applicability of C.46:2F-9 through C.46:2F-11 to property interests, powers of appointment
15. a. Except as provided in subsection b. of this section, sections 13 through 15 of this amendatory and supplementary act apply to:
(1) a future property interest or a power of appointment that is created on or after the effective date of this act; or
(2) a future property interest or a power of appointment created before the effective date of this act pursuant to the laws of any other state that does not have the rule against perpetuities in force and to which, after the effective date of this act, the laws of this State are made applicable by transfer of the situs of a trust to New Jersey, by a change in the law governing a trust instrument to New Jersey law, or otherwise. For purposes of this section only, a future property interest or a power of appointment is created when the power is irrevocably exercised or when a revocable exercise becomes irrevocable.
b. With respect to a nonvested property interest or a power of appointment created before the effective date of this act, which is determined in a judicial proceeding commenced on or after the effective date of this act, to violate this State's rule against perpetuities as that rule existed before the effective date of this act, a court upon the petition of an interested person may reform the disposition in the manner that most closely approximates the transferor's manifested plan of distribution and is within the limits of the rule against perpetuities applicable when the nonvested property interest or power of appointment was created. The "rule against perpetuities" as used in this subsection shall mean the provisions of sections 1 through 8 of P.L.1991. c.192 (C.46:2F-1 through 42:2F-8), in effect at the time stated herein, notwithstanding the repeal of those sections by this amendatory and supplementary act.
