COLLATERAL WARRANTY

In real estate transactions, an assurance or guaranty of title made by the holder of the title to the person to whom the property is conveyed.

Such a warranty is not the same as a covenant running with the land, since it runs only to a particular convenantee who accepts the land from the holder of title and not to each successive owner of the land upon taking ownership of it.
