noun

Comparative law notes

In China, corporeal hereditament does not exist as a legal concept, but China's Property Law (物权法) provides similar protection on real rights (物权). Real rights are exclusive rights of direct control enjoyed by the holder over a specific property, and can be acquired through inheritance (继承) or bequest (遗赠). In Hong Kong, corporeal hereditament is known as有體可繼承產. It includes tangible (有體) rights in land and physical objects that form part of the land. If an interest entitles the landowner to present possessions or collect rents and is inheritable (可繼承), it is also considered as corporeal hereditament.
