worthier titlenoun, often capitalized W&T
Legal Definition of worthier title
Note: The doctrine of worthier title today is usually considered in light of its implication for inter vivos transfers (that is, transfers made between living persons) to an heir. When a grantor makes an inter vivos conveyance of property followed by a future estate to his or her heirs, the conveyance is deemed to create a reversion in the grantor rather than a remainder in the heirs, so that the heirs take by descent and receive a superior title to that which they would have received through the remainder.
