Limited owners are free to execute improvements if there is no restriction imposed by law on their execution1. Some improvements have been considered to be waste for which a remainderman or reversioner could impeach the life tenant2. Apart from statute3 and the express terms of the settlement or trust instrument from which the limited owner derives his estate or interest, a limited owner has no claim against the capital of the funds for the cost of buildings erected or improvements made by him4.
