  • Altering a covenant on a deed

    I've converted a property into 2 flats with full planning consent from the council. I am the freeholder however on the original deed there is a 33 year old covenant that was put in when the property was sold initially to the council owner that says the property can only be used as a single family dwelling.

    Who do I contact to change this covenant? The council don't see to help at all or even know what this is in reference to.

    Don't try to contact anyone - wait until the conversion is 12 months old and a restrictive covenant indemnity policy should be easily available - but might not be if you go fishing around trying to find the beneficiaries of the covenant.
