Variations where a Part only of the mortgaged Premises

(1) As it is necessary, in order to make the covenants for the Previous retitle run with the land, that there should be a privity of estate conveyance to

the mortgagor between the vendor and purchaser, Webb v. Russell, 3 Durnf. may be reand East. 393, 678. i Hen. Blac. 562, Roach v. Woodham, quired. 6 East. Rep. 289, a mortgagor is sometimes required to procure a reconveyance of the fee to himself (by deed dated the day preceding) before he conveys to a purchaser, because as there is no legal privity between the purchaser and the vendor, during the subsistence of the mortgagee's estate, it might be contended that the covenants for the title were covenants in gross, and would not entitle the purchaser to avail himself of them, otherwise than by making use of the name of the vendor; but as, on the other hand, judgments and other incumbrances of the vendor, or his wife's title to dower, might attach on the estate, by suffering it to vest in him previously to the conveyance to the purchaser, it is inore general to take the conveyance

immediately from the mortgagee. The variations subjoined may perhaps however be considered as obviating the objection.

(1) Although the vendor be married, yet as a wife is not entitled to dower out of an equity of redemption, she need not be a party unless the mortgage was made subsequent to his marriage, and no fine was levied on the execution of the mortgage, or the declaration of the uses subject to the mortgage was to the husband in fee, and the conveyance to the purchaser be before forfeiture, in which case a fine will be necessary, see a full and instructive note on this subject, Co. Lit. 208, n. (1).

(2) If the purchaser be married, and his wife dowable, make a trustee party, as,

“ Being a trustee named and appointed by and on behalf of the said (purchaser) for the purposes hereinafter mentioned, of the part," as ante, No. XXXI. p. 2, n. (1).

If the conveyance be from the heir at law, or other representative of the mortgagee, make,

(The heir at law (or devisee) of the mortgagee) of the first part, (his executors or administrators) of the second part, (the vendor) of the third part, and (the purchaser) of the fourth part.”

If the heir at law of the mortgagee be an infant, see post, rider (B) p. 143.
