HelloMy house has the benefit of a restrictive covenant

Resolved Question:

Hello My house has the benefit of a restrictive covenant against my neighbours garage (which is enclosed by my land) which states they must use it only for parking of one motor vehicle. They have currently moved out to allow an extension to their house to be built. The builder wants to store materials in the garage during the build which we are happy for them to do for a fee. My question is if we have a contract with the neighbour to allow them to store materials in the garage for a period of say 12 months, would this put the restrictive covenant at risk? Also do I need to have a contract drawn up by a solicitor or will my own suffice.

Thank George Pratt

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

If this is a licence for 12 months then no.

Alex Watts :

It wont put it at risk

Alex Watts :

This is because a licence is just that, a licence that can be terminated

Alex Watts :

So it wont put it at risk

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: Hi Alex
Customer: Hi Alex thank you for the reply. Is it reasonable to draw up the licence myself or should it be done by a solicitor?
Alex Watts :

I would get it done properly and ask them to pay the cost.

Alex Watts :

Does that help?

Customer: Brilliant. Thanks Alex.
