40. Pollock Contracts (Willis-ton's Ed.) 335; Woodward, Quasi Contracts Sec. 262.

In Illinois and Oklahoma the right of the grantor to rescind has been based on the theory that the neglect or refusal of the grantee to comply with his contract raises a presumption that he made it without intending to perform, and that the conveyance was accordingly acquired by fraud.41 In Rhode Island a reconveyance has been decreed upon the theory that the conveyance creates a continuing obligation in the nature of a trust, and that the failure to support is a renunciation of the trust.42

Occasionally the court, in granting a rescission of the conveyance by reason of the noncompliance with the contract for support, has decreed an accounting in favor of the grantee on account of expenditures already incurred by him in furnishing support or in improving the property.43

Although the great weight of authority is, as above indicated, in favor of the right of the grantor to demand a rescission of the conveyance upon a breach of the grantee's promise, in some states a contrary view has been taken, the grantor being confined to an action for damages,44 except, in perhaps two states, when the

The courts have occasionally recognized and established a lien on the property for the value of the support which was to be furnished,46 a lien which, though not so termed, appears to be equivalent to the so called vendor's lien for the price of land conveyed.47 It has however been quite as frequently decided that a vendor's lien for the value of the support does not exist, in view of the uncertain and unliquidated character of a claim therefor.48 In one state the court has taken control of the land, by means of a receiver or otherwise, for the purpose of applying the profits, or a portion thereof, to the grantor's support.49

,330 Real Property. [ Sec. 89

Occasionally a mortgage is executed expressly to secure the performance of a contract for support;50 and in at least one state it has been held that a conveyance expressed as subject to a condition of the grantor's support was in effect a conveyance with a mortgage back to secure the support.51 Conversely a conveyance accompanied by a mortgage back to secure support has been regarded as in effect a conveyance on condition of support, and as such subject to rescission on failure to furnish support.52 Approximately equivalent in effect to a mortgage back in favor of the grantor to secure support is language in the conveyance creating an express charge upon the land for the furnishing of support by the grantee to the grantor.53

A contract for support has usually been regarded as personal in character, the grantor being entitled to the care and attention in this regard of the person himself, who promised to furnish the support. Consequently the grantee cannot ordinarily delegate to another the duty of furnishing support,54-55 and it has even been decided that a subsequent transfer of the land by the grantee shows an intention not to furnish support as agreed, so as to justify rescission of the conveyance.56 For a like reason, that the grantor is entitled to have the support furnished by the grantee himself, he has occasionally been regarded as entitled to rescind upon the death of the grantee.57
