• Covenant Concerning Use Of Dwelling

    By Guest on 05th Jun 2015

    My property has a 60 yr old covenant saying it can not be used for business purposes other that a Vet, Doctor, Accountant or Dentist. We have a small extension which we would like to let in the Summer months to supplement my OA Pension. Will I be in breach of the covenant and if so can I do anything to change that?

    It is was the occupants do that is relevant so as long as you let it for residential purposes only (such as a holiday let which I guess is your intention) you will not be in breach

    Thank you so very much - I am not quite sure of your meaning in the first line 'It is was the occupants do that is relevant'. Can you help me there please. Kind regards.

    What I mean is that if no business activities are carried out on the premises then there is no breach. The point of this type of covenant is to prevent the property from being used as business premises, such as a shop, factory, mechanic's garage etc
