No but we have a Deed of Covenant which is properly drawn up, signed and witnessed for each owner.
This requires the society to provide services on the one hand, while each
owner undertakes to pay a service charge and abide by any rules.
It contains a commitment by each owner not to sell without requiring the
buyer to enter into a similar agreement with our society.
This is liable to be ignored by the owner, so we are dependent on the
estate agent to disclose the info that we are a private estate.
