Usufruct is a legal term that refers to the right to enjoy, use, and benefit from another person's property without causing damage to or depleting that property. This right is often granted for a specific time period and does not include the right to sell or destroy the property.
the right of using and enjoying the profits of an estate or other thing belonging to another, without impairing the substance
Usufruct is a right of enjoyment, enabling a holder to derive profit or benefit from property that either is titled to another person or which is held in common ownership, as long as the property is not damaged or destroyed. In many usufructory property systems, such as the traditional ejido system in Mexico, individuals or groups may only acquire the usufruct of the property, not legal title.
