There are similarities and differences between usufruct and ownership between the usufruct and right of residence numerous differences, but also some commonalities. Basically, you could say that the usufruct gives more rights to those for whose benefit the usufruct has been appointed, as the mere right of abode. The usufruct is the holder of the right the full right to pull the uses out of it. E.g. the right of usufruct to a rented apartment for those who can take advantage of the apartment, but also rent. The income available to him. The real ownership, however, is merely the right to inhabit the property the holder of this engrained. Who has only a right of abode, for example may not rent the apartment. Thus less rights to anyone who has only a right of abode, as the usufructuary. A further, and in practice very important difference is that a usufruct to other things as land can be ordered. E.g. a usufruct on shares is so, so Shares of a limited liability company or a partnership possible. In comparison, a timeshare logically only in connection with land may arise. The usufruct and the right of abode have also in common: they are entered in the land register and act towards everyone, i.e. everyone must respect the right of usufruct and the right of abode of the person entitled. The owner sells the House, so the ownership remains still, unless it renounced the legitimate”on it. As a result but also a considerable risk: A real estate, which is burdened with a usufruct or right of abode, so someone is usufruct or has a right of residence, could prove to be the not for sale. Therefore is, if a sale of real estate is intended or anyway, cannot be ruled out, to check whether a usufruct or a right of abode are useful. The usufruct has its importance mainly in the so-called vorweggnommenen succession”, with beneficial orders in certain cases to the Part considerable inheritance tax and gift tax benefits can be achieved.
