Observations on Arbitration Bonds. If an agreement or indenture has been entered in- By indenture to by the parties in respect to the submission, and and bond. the bond is for the performance of the award to be made in pursuance thereof, the instrument should be recited shortly thus : “And whereas they, the said, &c., by an indenture bearing even date with the above-written obligation, and made, or expressed to be made, between the said A. B. of the one part, and the said C. D. of the other part, have agreed to reser and execute mutual bonds for the performance of the award of the said, &c., with such condition to be thereunder written for making void the same as hereinafter is expressed.”

It is sometimes prudent to take a warrant of at- As to real torney to confess, &c., as a collateral security, to property. compel the performance of an award as to the title of land, with a defeasance that no execution shall be taken out unless the arbitrator by his award should direct the defendant to yield possession, which, if the party directed so to do should refuse, the warrant of attorney, given as in ejectment, might be entered up, and possession obtained. (See Chitty's Archbold, p. 1023.)

A right of real property cannot pass by mere award, (Marks v. Mariot, 1 Ld. Raymond, 115,) but

Submissions

a conveyance or release of land may be awarded, (3 Bl. Com. 16.) After the making of the award the submission is not revocable.e

Before the recent act of 3d and 4th William IV., not revocable. cap. 42, either party might have revoked his sub

mission at any time before the making of the award, and before the submission was made a rule of court; but by the 39th section of that act, it is enacted, that submissions by rule of court shall not be revocable by any party without leave of court, but that the arbitrator may proceed with the reference, notwithstanding any revocation.

The death of any of the parties, before the award is made, in most cases, determines the arbitrator's powers, unless it has been otherwise agreed. A parol submission cannot be made a rule of court. (Ansell v. Evans, 7 T. R. 1; Godfrey v. Wade, 6 Moore, 488.) See Awards, p. 311.
