Use

 

(pol’zovanie), in law, one of the basic legal rights of a property owner. The right of use consists in the right to the productive or personal use of an object for the satisfaction of one’s needs and interests, depending on the nature of the object, for example, use of property or receipt of income from an object. Limits to use are set by law, contract, or other legal document, such as a will. Use is forbidden if it is detrimental to other individuals (abuse of the right). Legal use may be protected from infringement by various legal means, in particular, by bringing a suit for the elimination of impediments to use.
