Washington Law Review


Since the case of Ashford v. Reese, it has been a much mooted question as to the extent of a vendee's rights under an executory contract for the sale of realty The purpose of this article is not to discuss the correctness of the rule of law as laid down in the Ashford case, but to examine the rights of a vendee, irrespective of the question as to whether or not he should have what is known in the law as an equitable title. Logically, even though the doctrine of equitable conversion be rejected, the vendee's remedy of specific performance should not be affected.
