Quiet Enjoyment

Definition

The right to possess real property without material interference with the property interest. In a conveyance of title, the covenant of quiet enjoyment promises that the grantee's possession and enjoyment of the property will not be disturbed by someone who holds superior title. In a lease, the implied covenant of quiet enjoyment guarantees that the tenant's possession will not be disturbed by the landlord or by anyone else claiming an interest superior to the tenant's interest.
