We live in a small development of four houses. We are the second owners of the house. The original covenant was with the developers for five years (now passed) and with "other owners permanently". It states we the owners of the property must "Not use any part of the Property other than for private residential purposes". If I was to work from my home office and there was to be no signage; and there would be no huge increase in footfall (at most one visitor every couple of days for say, half an hour), would this be ok? The house is still residential; there would be no "shop frontage" or signage, or regular deliveries or anything that should cause a nuisance.
Thanks. ***** correct in thinking that a court would expect them to send me a letter before action before they did anything such as issue proceedings? If so I would be inclined to carry on quietly but if asked would stop and then look to rent somewhere (or move!!).
No i haven't alerted anyone to the potential breach - where would I go to get such cover?
Thanks so much for this advice. It's as I thought about the action that could be taken and on that basis I think I will leave the insurance as if challenged or if I thought the footfall was becoming unreasonable I would stop myself anyway and work elsewhere as I have no wish to be a nuisance to anyone.
Your prompt advice is very welcome. I will be giving you the highest possible rating.
