WHAT DOES ABEYANCE MEAN IN ENGLISH?
Abeyance is a state of expectancy in respect of property, titles or office, when the right to them is not vested in any one person, but awaits the appearance or determination of the true owner. In law, the term abeyance can only be applied to such future estates as have not yet vested or possibly may not vest. For example, an estate is granted to A for life, with remainder to the heir of B. During B's lifetime, the remainder is in abeyance, for until the death of B it is uncertain who is B's heir. Similarly the freehold of a benefice, on the death of the incumbent, is said to be in abeyance until the next incumbent takes possession.
The definition of abeyance in the dictionary is usually preceded by in or into a state of being suspended or put aside temporarily. Other definition of abeyance is an indeterminate state of ownership, as when the person entitled to an estate has not been ascertained.
