Demonstrative Legacy Law and Legal Definition

Demonstrative legacy is a legacy paid from a particular source if that source is enough money. If it does not have enough money, then the remaining amount of legacy is taken from the general asset of the estate. In other words, demonstrative legacy is a bequest of a certain sum of money, intended for the legatee at all events, with a fund particularly referred to for its payment. If the estate does not remain as the testator's property at his/her death, the legacy will not fail but be payable out of general assets.
