ATTORNMENTS.

What it is. Obs. 1. Attornment is, properly, the acknowledgment by the tenant of a new lord, or the agreement of the tenant to the grant of the seignory of a rent, or of a rerersion and remainder, Co. Litt. 309, a. Since the 4 and 5 Ann. c. 16, and 11 G. II. c. 19, an attornment is no longer necessary to the validity of a grant, and is therefore seldom made, except occasionally to mortgagees, or in the case of a recovery, in ejectment.

Stamp. 2. A mere attornment, 'not containing an agreement to pay

such rent, as shall be agreed upon, requires no stamp. Cornish v. Searell, 8 B. and C. 47.
