Uniform Laws Update provides information on uniform and model state laws in development as they apply to property, trust, and estate matters. The editors of Probate & Property welcome information and suggestions from readers.
The Uniform Law Commission (ULC) is beginning two new projects of interest to RPTE members. A new drafting committee will create uniform legislation on conflicts of state laws governing trusts and estates. A new study committee will consider whether the issue of gridlocked tenancy-in-common property can be addressed with a new uniform or model act. The ULC recently appointed both committees, which are just starting their work. Interested members of the RPTE section are invited to contribute to both projects.
