The purpose of the various rules of apportionment is to provide a fair and reasonable basis for dividing certain items between the conflicting interests of the life tenant and the remainderman.

  • Statutory apportionments;
  • Variation of securities;
  • Equitable apportionments.

 

(b) Statutory apportionments
Where income has been received in respect of a period which "bridges" the date of a death, it must be apportioned between the two parts of the period on a time basis. This applies to all rents, annuities, dividends and similar items.
