    Both restrictive and positive covenants are frequently encountered. Over 70% of all freehold titles are subject to restrictive covenants. Many such covenants are unenforceable but can still give rise to substantial problems. On many occasions, insurance can provide a timely and cost-effective solution.


    This briefing session aims to look at the enforceability of such covenants. In addition, estate rent charges are becoming a major issue and the session will provide an update on those issues.


    Topics covered in this briefing include:

    • Enforceability of restrictive covenants
    • Interpretation of restrictive covenants
    • When to advise and when to insure
    • Enforceability of positive covenants
    • Unadopted roads and their maintenance
    • Flying freeholds
    • Estate rent charges in freehold land

    This free event is aimed at both residential and commercial solicitors and conveyancers as well as those looking at development and planning risks.


    A complimentary buffet lunch is also included and provides an ideal opportunity to network with other solicitors, conveyancing practitioners and developers in the area as well as with Richard himself.


    Free Parking is available.
