Modifying Restrictive Covenants - Exploring the Latest Case Law with Sarah Thompson-Copsey
Covenants that restrict the user of land can make it difficult for individuals to extend their homes or sell off part of their gardens, as well as blight the profits of professional developers and detract from the value of the land.
How easy is it to modify such a covenant? When will the tribunal exercise its discretion and what sort of evidence will the tribunal require?
This intermediate level webinar will look at the practical lessons to be drawn from recent case law.
