  • Property to meet essential needs of a spouse;
  • Property created from separate property of a spouse;
  • Yields and profits arising from separate property of each spouse after common property division are separate property of each spouse;
  • The land-use rights are separately inherited by, or given to a spouse or are obtained through transactions made with separate property.
