In a note upon this form in the first edition of this work, in which it was recommended that the premises should be conveyed at once to the mortgagee, or a power given to the purchaser in the conveyance to him, and the mortgage created by appointment under that power, it was stated that the premises would be thereby vested in the mortgagee, discharged from any judgments or incumbrances of the purchaser ; but it is considered that, in consequence of the act of 1st and 2d Vict. c. 110, the rights of creditors would not be affected by any such expedients.

If the annuitant is not made a party to the conveyance, then, so much of the money as will produce an annual income equal to the charge may remain in the purchaser's hands on security of the estate; and to effect the same, a term may be limited to trustees to pay out of the rents the annual sum required to the annuitant ; and after his decease, in trust to raise the principal and interest, and pay the same to the vendor.
