What is the Covenant of Seisin Clause?

The covenant of seisin (also seizin) is a promise that the grantor owns the property and has the right to convey title.

The covenant of seisin states that the property is free from liens or other encumbrances except as noted in the deed. This clause gives the grantee notice of all encumbrances (liens, restrictions, and so forth) associated with the property.

These covenants cannot, and do not, guarantee a marketable title. The clauses are only as good as the grantor. If the grantor is insolvent or unreliable, the covenants are of little or no value.
