What is a Restrictive Covenant? (Australian readership)


A restrictive covenant is a private agreement between two or more landowners that imposes restrictions on the use and development of a piece of land.

This article by Michelle Janczarski, Solicitor, Lovegrove Solicitors, discusses the nature of restrictive covenants, common circumstances where they are used, and ways to remove or alter restrictive covenants.
