Realteilung

"Realteilung” translates to a family’s possessions, especially land and real estate, which are divided equally among the beneficiaries in real term: the number of smaller and smallest lots increases over generations. The opposite is the “Anerbenrecht” where a possession (e.g. farm) goes cohesively to one beneficiary to keep its productive efficiency.
