44-6-83. Rights and duties of life tenant; forfeiture of interest to remainderman

The tenant for life shall be entitled to the full use and enjoyment of the property if in such use he exercises the ordinary care of a prudent man for its preservation and protection and commits no acts which would permanently injure the remainder or reversion interest. For the want of such care or the willful commission of such acts, the tenant for life shall forfeit his interest to the remainderman if the remainderman elects to claim immediate possession.
