It ranks as a legal estate3, although no term of years is actually created4, and it gives the chargee the same protection, powers and remedies as if a mortgage term for 3,000 years without impeachment of waste in the case of freeholds5, or a mortgage sub-term less one day than the term vested in the mortgagor in the case of leaseholds
