A covenant against assignment is restricted in its operation to voluntary assignments1. It is, therefore, not broken where the lease is taken in execution2, provided the execution is bona fide3; nor where it vests in a trustee in bankruptcy4; nor where it passes on the death of the tenant (whether as part of his personal estate5, or under a specific bequest6); nor where it is acquired by a public body under powers of compulsory acquisition
