Abstract

This study utilizes interpersonal justice concepts to examine issues of fairness in the intergenerational transfer of non-titled property. Individual family members who had experienced property transfers articulate previously unidentified distributive justice goals and decision rules, as well as procedural justice elements and guidelines. Future family inheritance research ideas using interpersonal justice concepts are suggested. Findings provide the basis for family focused educational resources addressing the meaning of fairness.
