derogation from grant
In the context of landlord and tenant, where a landlord has taken steps or granted another party rights which render the premises unfit or unsuitable for the purpose for which they were let. The principle is limited: it does not offer protection for uses not contemplated by the landlord when it granted the lease, or from actions of the landlord which have an economic but no physical effect on the tenant's use.
