Notes of Decisions

Heirs cannot require a widow occupying land of which her husband died seised to pay rent unless they impose rent as a condition of her occupancy or until they demand she vacate. Ferguson v. Vance, 263 Or 636, 503 P2d 706 (1972)

A widow's occupation of land of which her husband died seised need not be with the children or heirs, but she can occupy the premises only so long as the heirs or others interested do not object. Ferguson v. Vance, 263 Or 636, 503 P2d 706 (1972)
