reservation


reservation
A clause in a deed or other instrument of conveyance by which the grantor creates, and reserves to himself, some right, interest, or profit in the estate granted, which had no previous existence as such, but is first called into being by the instrument reserving it; such as rent, or an easement. Reservation occurs where granting clause of the deed operates to exclude a portion of that which would otherwise pass to the grantee by the description in the deed and "reserves" that portion unto the grantor. Board of County Com'rs of Weld County v. Anderson, 34 Colo.App. 37, 525 P.2d 478, 482.
A right created and retained by a grantor. The reservation may be temporary (such as a life estate) or permanent (such as an easement running with the land). The reservation of a point of law is the act of the trial court in setting it aside for future consideration, allowing the trial to proceed meanwhile as if the question had been settled one way, but subject to alteration of the judgment in case the court in bane should decide it differently.
For exception and reservation distinguished, see and compare exception.
A reservation is a tract of land, more or less considerable in extent, which is by public authority withdrawn from sale or settlement, and appropriated to specific public uses; such as parks, military posts, Indian lands, etc.
