Covenant approval guidance

Failure to get permission

The covenant is generally in place for a reason and where we have not granted a release, variation or approval for works undertaken, we could take action against you for breaching that covenant. This could mean additional costs to you if we ask for building works to cease, or be undone.

The restriction on your property stays with the land, any failure to get a covenant release or deed of variation could affect your ability to sell your property. This is because the solicitor acting on behalf of the purchaser may advise the purchaser not to proceed without the necessary covenant consent, if the sale went through without the covenant consent, the new owner would then be liable for obtaining the approval.
