year, day, and waste

An ancient right of the king. “In petit treason and felony the offender also forfeits all his chattel interests absolutely, and the profits of all estates of freehold during life, and, after his death, all his lands and tenements in fee simple (but not those in tail) to the crown, for a very short period of time; for the king shall have them for a year and a day, and may commit therein what waste he pleases; which is called the king's year, day and waste." See 4 Bl Comm 385.
