an expression indicating a right or restriction that affects all current and future owners of a property.
A legal term which suggests that a rule, restriction, right or obligation forms part of the land itself and is transferred to each new owner along with the land.
A phrase used to describe an interest in a landowner's land held by someone else, which interest survives a change of ownership of the land.
A phrase describing rights or covenants that bind or benefit successive owners of a property. An example is a restrictive building covenant in a recorded deed that would affect all future owners of the property. Unlike an easement in gross, an easement appurtenant runs with the land and thus passes to a succeeding owner even if it is not specified in the deed. For example, if the grantee Sylvia Buckner agrees, as part of the consideration to a transaction, to repair a building located on land owned by grantor Leonard Musslewhite, such a covenant will not run with the land. This is because it merely places a duty on the grantee Buckner. The promise does not touch and concern the land granted from Musslewhite to Buckner--it is only a personal covenant for the grantor's benefit.
Expression that indicates a right or a restriction that will affect all current and future owners.
