(n) The estate clause is not used in appointments, because the appointor does not appoint his own estate, but the estate which was made subject to his power, by the instrument creating the power.

Covenants will not run with the land.

(0) When the conveyance is by appointment, as here and in Precedent XVII., the covenants for title will not run with the land, because the appointees take under the instrument by which the power was created; and, consequently, there is no privity of estate between the covenantor and the covenantees. (See ante, Vol. i. Art. Covenants; 2 Sugd. V. & P. ch. xiii. s. 1). Where there is a releasee, the covenants should always be entered into with him and his heirs, as they will then run with the land, for the benefit of all the persons in whom the statute executes a use, declared on the seisin of the releasee. See the authorities above cited.

done any act which prevents his exercising his power, or releasing, as the case may be; or any act, whereby the estate may be incumbered. If the estate is in him, the covenant is generally simply that he has done no act whereby the estate may be incumbered, without reference to his right to convey. And, certainly, it is very reasonable -do not exthat a trustee's covenants should be strictly confined to his own acts tend to further

assurance. and those of persons claiming through him; but there seems no reason at all why he should not covenant in the usual way for further assurance by himself, and persons claiming through him. However, the established practice is, that a trustee does not covenant for further assurance, and it is in vain to attempt to alter the rule.

The above observations apply to the covenants of mortgagees, assignees, and others in similar situations.
