Hi Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. This is a restrictive covenant so in theory the only party that can enforce that is the land that benefits from it or the person that was party to that conveyance. If the company that can enforce this no longer exists, then in all likelihood there will no one to enforce it. If you want to breach the restrictive covenant, you could obtain an indemnity insurance policy for this purpose - it has a one off premium, but it will protect you if anyone did come out of the wood work and sue you. Do you have any neighbours that are likely to see this and object?
Hi, Thank you. Technically there are two points to consider here assuming you cannot obtain consent from the covenant owner:
(i) If the neighbours objected would they be prepared to sue you to enforce the covenant - if the answer is yes then you would simply have to move the caravan before the matter reached court;
(ii) If the caravan is only for leisure then you may have an argument to say it does not even breach the covenant.
Bare in mind this is not something the council are likely to enforce - it is a private restrictive covenant. Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. Do you know what the other company is called? There is no real way of checking this, save that if it had happened, it would have been done by an assignment which you would have received notice of for the assignment to be valid.
