all-the-estate clause.English law. The provision  in a conveyance  transferring “all the estate,

right, title, interest, claims, and demand” of the grantor in the property conveyed. — Also termed

all-estate clause.

“It was also usual before 1882 to add what was called an ‘all estate clause’ with the object of

ensuring that the entire interest of the grantor should be transferred. This was as a matter of fact

quite ineffective to transfer any-thing that would not pass automatically, and it is now omitted in

reliance  on  the  enactment  that,  unless  a  contrary  intention  is  expressed,  every  conveyance  is

effectual to pass all the estate, right, title, interest, claim, and demand which the conveying parties

respectively have in, to, or on the property.” G.C. Cheshire, Modern Law of Real Property 679–80

(3d ed. 1933). [Blacks Law 8th]
