    Are covenants subject to the 4-year rule? Ta.

    Would that be the 4 year rule for things without planning permission? Probably not....but who is applying the covenant, are they still interested in enforcing it?

    Of interest to my sis. She wants a little (3m long x 600mm high) boundary wall, and found the covenant in the deeds. The tw houses adjacent have walls (and gates, also prohibited) and no-one seems to care.

    If its newish build, developers tend to put restrictions on phase 1 (no caravans, no fences, that sort of stuff) so they can use phase 1 as an advert for the rest of the scheme. It should say on the deeds who would enforce the covenant, if it/they still exist then contact them

    Covenants run with the properties and successive owners forever or until removed.
