We want to move house so that we can have bigger drive to park MH. Yesterday after a house viewing we were told that there was a covenant banning the parking of caravans , motorhomes etc. Anyone had this problem?
Not quite. You are actually told what you can/can't do before buying. If people buy knowing the restrictions then that is their decision. I'm pretty sure few (if any) people are actually forced to buy a particular property.Surely once the road is adopted by the council for maintenance etc it's nothing to do with the builders. It just seems odd you pay a lot of money for a house and you are told what you can do with it just as if you was renting it. Still it's a strange world.
Public roads normally aren't covered by the covenant (though on road parking of certain vehicles is restricted on some council estates). Restrictions normally apply to the curtilage of the property.Yes , I just find it strange that a public road can be subject to somebody's covenants. We live and learn.
