Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! This is another installment of our "Listen and Learn" series, where we review legal concepts and apply them to fact patterns. Today, we're going to explore covenants, a type of non-possessory interest in someone's land.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The rule statement for covenants
  • Restrictive covenants versus affirmative covenants
  • The different elements needed to enforce a covenant
  • The remedy for covenants
  • Differences between covenants and equitable servitudes
  • Elements of horizontal and vertical privity
  • Analyzing two essay questions from previous bar exams
