Restrictive covenant

This is a requirement in the Deeds of a property, essentially demanding that the owner not do something or other.

Restrictive covenants are quite common. They are often imposed by a land-owner when the land is sold in order to place a restriction on the future use of that land. They can also be known as an Encumbrance.

Although theoretically they can cover anything, they would typically place restrictions on matters such as the use of the land for trade, the building of new structures or further development of a site.
