Inter vivos

Definition

A legal term of art typically referring to a transfer of property that takes place during the grantor's lifetime, as opposed to a transfer that is effective only upon the grantor's death, such as by will or intestacy. An inter vivos transfer is usually distinct from a causa mortis transfer, which is a transfer made in contemplation of the grantor's impending death.
