General occupancy. If the estate "pur autre vie" was merely granted "to A" without any mention of his heirs, A's heir had no special claim to the land, for it was not inheritable. The first person to enter the land after A's death was therefore entitled to it as "general occupant" for the rest of the life of the "cestui que vie".... (Megarry & Wade, 4th ed., 1975, p. 101).
