    Just an update and whinge to be honest

    Been waiting since we moved in for trades to complete works required
    Since we moved to this bungaloid

    Boiler change ( http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum...d-why-i-miss-my-gas-safe-qualification.95329/ )

    Well we also wanted a side door in the garage
    So we contacted a few company's nearly 6 weeks back

    Said to Mrs t at the time obviously they'll both come at the same time

    Guess what !
    they are both coming Wednesday
    Bet it's the coldest day this month

    How old is your property? Many covenants were put in place to stop builders etc living in caravans etc while the properties were being built. Unless there are neighbours or management companies that would complain or you fear that your neighbours would bring their tatty caravan ;) onto their land if you set a precedent, I believe that you may be able to quietly ignore that covenant.

    Out for a spin on the Sunday round the block 500 yds/ meters
    Bloomin Nick nick lights hello hello £25.00 it cost me

    As above

    If the builder has folded and they probably wouldn't be interested anyway

    It would have to be a neighbor to take you to court as it would be a civil mater.

    I would be surprised if a MH is in a covenants, it tends to be commercial vehicles over a certain size/tonnage ie works vans.
    Caravans seem to appear a lot as well

    Would the presence of the mh block anyone's light or view? Do you get on with your neighbours? Our solicitor said that it would be very difficult to enforce the covenant and the only likely scenario would be having a neighbour complain because you block their light or view and they would have to take you to civil court to get the covenant enforced which is unlikely.

    if the builder folded, then they cannot enforce the covenant as they no longer have a vested interest. had exactly the same at this property and mother in laws. took legal advice because a neighbour complained and basically the covenant is not worth the paper its written on any more. only any use as the builder built then sold the surrounding properties, but not since
    mother in laws was built on an old farm belonging to an estate 100 years+ ago. the covenant also listed no itinerant workers and other bits that would be illegal to try and enforce now, obsoleting the entire covenant
    get a local solicitor to look at the document if worried, but shouldnt cost much. many give 1/2 hour free advice on similar matters and will say if theres any chance of losing

    Whilst I'll go along with you they covered that angle too
    But it's now been adopted by local council

    Mind you the covernants been broken by a good no of folks
    On the estate with tall washing lines extra walls and conservatories
    White plastic windows
    At least ours are rosewood plaaastic ones

    Parking by us or our visitors wasn't allwed on the road
    Speed cars come round I don't think I'd like to
    To be honest

    And we mustn't object to the builder building near us
    Ht might struggle there is no room left
    :doh::RollEyes:
