An estate at sufferance is a(n)
- freehold estate
- less than freehold
- estate at will
- an unlawful detainer
The answer is B – a less than freehold estate is also a leasehold estate. Remember that a freehold estate refers to the interest that a person or people have in the ownership of real estate. The key word here is ownership.
With leasehold estates, the interest in real estate is from a tenant or lessee perspective. This means that there is no real interest in the ownership of the real estate – just the use of that real estate as a lessee or tenant.
