(d) Where two estates are mortgaged together, or two persons having distinct interests in an estate join in a mortgage, the order in which the estates and the mortgagors are to be primarily liable should always be declared in the mortgage-deed, so as to prevent disputes on the subject. Of course, however, the mortgagees should be excluded from any connection with this declaration, by the insertion of an express proviso to that effect.

(a) An assignee of a lease is liable to the payment of the rent reserved. Comparative and the performance of the covenants contained in the lease, although he advantages of a

mortgage by do not enter on the premises, (supra, p. 338, n. (h); 1 Wms. Saund. 241 a, underlease n. (16)). And although it was once held, that this did not apply to an and assignassignee upon mortgage, (Eaton v. Jacques, 2 Doug. 444); yet it is now ment. well settled, that a mortgagee who takes an assignment of a lease by way of mortgage, although he never enters upon or takes possession of the property, becomes liable to the rent and covenants of the lease. (Williams v. Bosunquet, 1 Brod. & Bing. 238). Hence, in framing a mortgage of leasehold property, it becomes necessary to consider whether the rent and covenants are of such an amount and nature, as to render the liability to them a serious incumbrance. If the rent be trifling, and the covenants not of a kind likely to be burdensome, the mortgage should be made by assignment, because it is expedient that the mortgagee should have the whole legal interest rather than a mere derivative estate. It is expedient, both for the purpose of a sale and because it precludes the mortgagor from forfeiting, or doing other mischief, with the nominal reversion which is left in him by an underlease. If, however, the rent be large, or the covenants of formidable liability, the mortgage must be made by underlease. The mortgagee will not then be liable to the superior landlord in respect of the rent or covenants of the original lease ; (Holford v. Hatch, 1 Doug. 183; Earl of Derby v. Taylor, 1 East, 502); although, of course, the chattels on the property will be liable to distraint. The risk, that the mortgagor may, by means of the nominal reversion left
