Question: What is The Bundle of Legal Rights of a Real Estate Owner?
Owning real estate carries with it a traditional "bundle of legal rights" transferred with the property from seller to buyer. These are the recognized rights of the holder of title to the property and include:
the right of possession - the property is owned by whomever holds title;
the right of control - within the laws, the owner controls the use of the property;
the right of exclusion - others can be excluded from using or entering the property;
the right of enjoyment - the owner can enjoy the use of the property in any legal manner; and
the right of disposition - the title holder can sell, rent or transfer ownership or use of the property at will
Ownership of land is holding "title" to it. The evidence of that title is the deed. The seller executes a deed to transfer title to real property and the bundle of rights that go with it.
