Messuage | Propertylogy


By on October 2, 2019

Messuage is a term used in older laws to describe a house and the adjacent land and buildings used by it.

This can include raw land, outbuildings, and even forested areas.

It is most commonly used when granting a widow usage rights to the property after the death of her husband.

This is because people with a lot of assets can sometimes require an extended amount of time to have their assets properly and legally distributed to the heirs either via a will or probate process.

Messuage will enable the widowed to use the property for a period of time until the legal process of distribution runs it’s course.

Otherwise, the widow would have no home to go to after the death of a loved one.
