At the end of the 50 years, the family would go free. The descendants of the individual would benefit and would regain their property. This is why a kinsman of the man in debt is allowed to buy the land earlier than the Jubilee. In these texts, we see the move from tribal to national consciousness.
The Book of the Covenant in Exodus reflects a tribal society. Leviticus is still concerned about the family.
To review the outline of Israelite history: David and Solomon changed the tribal inheritances into federal districts, the northern tribes split into a second kingdom, many from those northern tribes were transplanted to Assyria. What was left, at least according to biblical history, was the kingdom of Judah.

Deuteronomy humanizes the Covenant Code in Exodus and works for significant reforms given the realities of its time.
Leviticus says that there is no such thing as an Israelite slave. Deuteronomy understands that there will be slaves and they must be treated well until they will be released. Combining the laws of the Covenant Code with the antipathy for the enslavement of an Israelite in Leviticus, Deuteronomy forged a compromise that was workable for its time.
