absolute or conditional covenants

absolute or conditional covenants
An absolute covenant is one which is not qualified or limited by any condition.
Affirmative or negative covenants.
The former are those in which the party binds himself to the existence of a present state of facts as represented or to the future performance of some act; while the latter are those in which the covenantor obliges himself not to do or perform some act.
An "affirmative covenant" is an agreement whereby the covenantor undertakes that something shall be done. City of New York v. Turnpike Development Corp., 36 Misc.2d 704, 233 N.Y.S.2d 887, 891, 892.
