The doctrine of estoppel by deed is familiar to all students of real property law. So, too, are the principles of law relating to covenants for title made by a grantor in connection with a conveyance of land. It is the purpose of this comment to discuss the relation between the two areas of law, with particular reference to two problems: (1) what effect does the estoppel doctrine have upon the recovery of damages by the grantee where there has been a breach of the covenant of seisin; and (2) conversely, what effect does recovery of substantial damages by the grantee have upon the estoppel doctrine.
