Specific Bequest Law and Legal Definition

A specific bequest refers to a gift of any particular article to any person by specifically nominating the recipient to receive such article by a will.

A specific bequest is one comprised of specific articles of the testator's estate distinguished from all others of the same kind. Ademption applies only to specific bequests. [Opperman v. Anderson, 782 S.W.2d 8 (Tex. App. 1989)].
