Course-focused and comprehensive, the Textbook on Land Law provides an accessible overview of one key area on the law curriculum. This chapter deals with the rights and duties of the landlord and tenant who are the parties to the lease. Every lease contains provisions which define the obligations of the landlord and tenant under the lease. Obligations in a lease may be imposed in one of two ways: by covenants or by conditions. A ‘covenant’ is a promise made by one party (the ‘covenantor’) for the benefit of another party (the ‘covenantee’) which is contained in a deed. Express, implied, and usual covenants are discussed.
