Rule Against Perpetuities

A rule of common law that makes void any estate or interest in property so limited that it will not take effect or vest within a period measured by a life or lives in being at the time of the creation of the estate plus 21 years and the period of gestation. In many states, the rule has been modified by statute. Sometimes it is known as the rule against remoteness of vesting.
