    Hi guys, Im not trying to be one of those people that asks without doing the job themselves but a help on this one would be appreciated:

    What type of estate does A receive in the following inter vivos conveyances where they took place: (1) in 2008; (2) in 2012
    a) to A and his heirs
    b) to A and her heir
    c) to A the bishop of dublin and his heirs
    d) to A in fee
    e) to A for the life of B
    f) to A so long as he remains a good student
    g) to A on condition that she remains married to B, whatever happens
    h) to A and her heirs so long as she does not marry anyone from America
    i) to A for life and then B in tail
    j) to A for life, remainder to B for life, remainder to the heirs of A's body

    The reason that there are two timelines is that one is before and the other after the commencement of the Land Law and Conveyancing Reform Act 2009 which prohibits Fee Tails and Fee Farm Grants, conveying a Fee Simple instead.

    The rest of those will be in a good textbook on Land Law.

    You may also want to look up the rule against alienation.
