A clause in a document forbidding an individual from selling or transferring the subject property to another. Frequently, nonalienation clauses are used in a trust where the grantor of the trust believes the designated beneficiary is a spendthrift. In this situation, a nonalienation clause may be inserted to prevent the beneficiary from selling the assets of the trust. This type of trust is called a spendthrift trust.
