Title Covenants Law and Legal Definition

Title covenants are covenants for title appearing in a lease. Title covenants are ordinarily inserted in conveyances, being required by the purchaser as protection against insufficiency of title obtained by him from the vendor.

The following is an example of a case law referring to title covenants:

A title covenant is broken in the case of a private easement that materially impairs the value of the premises conveyed and interferes with the use and possession of some portion thereof, and this is true notwithstanding that a grantee has knowledge thereof at the time he accepted the conveyance. [Pagnotta v. Gavita, 29 Misc. 2d 311 (N.Y. Sup. Ct. 1961)].
