  2. (Template loop detected: Template:context 1) A covenant real, whereby the granter of an estate of freehold and his heirs were bound to warrant and defend the title, and, in case of eviction by title paramount, to yield other lands of equal value in recompense.

Among these is the covenant of warranty, which runs with the land, and is in the nature of a real covenant.
