Where documents of title are retained by the seller, the buyer is, in the absence of a condition to the contrary, entitled at his own expense to have certified copies of them1. He is also entitled at his own expense to a covenant for, or an acknowledgment of his right to, production2, and, unless the seller is a trustee or mortgagee, an undertaking for their safe custody3. The seller's inability to give the buyer a covenant or acknowledgment for production is not an objection to his title if the buyer will, on completion, have an equitable right to production
