¡°There are two quite distinct classes of incorporeal hereditaments:

1. Those which may ripen into corporeal hereditaments. Thus a grant to A for life with remainder to B in fee simple gave B an incorporeal hereditament which becomes corporeal after A’s death.

2. Those which can never become corporeal hereditaments but are merely rights over the land of another, e.g., rentcharges.¡± Robert E. Megarry & M.P. Thompson, A Manual of the Law of Real Property 361 (6th ed. 1993).
