This requires a marketable title and not an absolutely perfect title.2

This implied term does not survive conveyance. If there is a covenant of warranty it merges such implied term;3 and if there is no such covenant in the deed, the acceptance of such deed waives such implied term.4 The general rule is that there is no implied warranty as to the title of realty after an executed conveyance thereof.5

Non-disclosure of a defect in title not apparent on the face of the papers shown to establish title has been held to be fraud.6

This rule does not apply to defects of which the vendee has actual or constructive notice.7 Buildings which are usually constructed upon a farm in order to make it practicable to operate it, may be assumed by one who is entering into a contract to purchase such farm, to be a part of the realty.8 The fact that the purchaser knows that the farm is in possession of a tenant does not put him on inquiry as to the ownership of such building.9 The purchaser is not justified in assuming that machinery which can be removed easily,10 such as a gasoline engine and an outfit for pumping,11 is a part of the realty.

If title to personalty is warranted expressly, in a transaction by which realty and peieonalty are both conveyed, ouch express warranty excludes an implied warranty as to the title to the realty.12

There is no implied warranty that realty ic reasonably suitable for the purpose for whisk it is leased.13 There seems to be an implied warranty that the building is so constructed as to conform to building regulations as to strength.14

There is no implied warranty that realty leased for a long term is fit for occupancy.15 It has been held that a lease of residence property for a short term impliedly warrants that it is reasonably fit for occupancy.16 There is an implied warranty against latent defects, if known to the landlord and not disclosed to the tendnt.17 A landlord is bound to disclose to a tenant the fact that an electric light switch is not insulated and is accordingly dangerous.18 There is an implied warranty that a building offered for lease is not affected with any serious contagious disease,19 as small pox.20 or scarlet fever,21 or diphtheria.22
