equitable easements

A term frequently applied to covenants running with the land. Werner v Graham, 181 Cal 174, 183 P 945. Restrictive covenants as to the use of land or the location or character of buildings or other structures thereon are primary examples. 20 Am J2d Cov § 166. equitable ejectment. A paradoxical expression, since ejectment is a legal, not an equitable remedy, but nevertheless applied to an equitable remedy employed in obtaining the specific performance of contracts for the sale of real estate and in some other instances. McKendry v McKendry, 131 Pa 24, 18 A 1078.
