When a tenement jointly owned by a man and his wife has, with the wife's consent, been bequeathed by the man to be sold so that the money can be used to benefit his soul, and the widow has ratified this before the bailiffs in full court, her consent is to be recorded in the court rolls. She is then to be instructed to deliver any deeds or documents relating to the property to her husband's executors. If she refuses or is reticent, she is not to be allowed any [lifetime] rights in the bequeathed tenement until she delivers up the deeds. No-one who holds a tenement for life, or for a specified number of years, may bequeath, sell, lease or in any way alienate the tenement beyond the term of his permitted tenancy; and if that is done, it shall not be held valid.
