This popular work has established itself as an essential guide for the practitioner requiring an understanding of the law of restrictive covenants affecting freehold land. In this book a complex topic is made intelligible by easily understood text, complemented by flowcharts and checklists.

This enables the adviser to solve problems quickly and accurately. The author brings his extensive experience of cases involving covenants to the work, dealing with points that arise in practice both comprehensively and with authority.

The new edition considers all the key areas of law and practice affecting restrictive covenants. This new edition has been completely revised and updated with more detailed treatment of major issues affecting restrictive covenants, including:-

  • Consideration of recent legislation affecting restrictive covenants and Public Bodies including the Localism Act 2011;
  • Full references to recent case law on injunctions as the primary remedy for breach of covenant and developments in release fee/”Wrotham Park” damages;
  • New Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) (UTLC) Rules and Practice Directions with reference to and summaries of all recent cases in the UTLC and in the Court of Appeal in applications under s 84(1) Law of Property Act 1925; and
  • Extensive appendices with statutory and other material and precedents, all of which are available on the accompanying free CD-ROM
