When you are buying a particular property your real estate agent will normally provide you with a copy of the restrictive covenants for that property. Before placing your offer for the purchase you should go through it to know if any restriction will be imposed through it.

Hi Erinw,

Restrictive covenant is a type of clause included in a contract which prevents one party from doing certain things. For example, thelender can impose this kind of restriction on the borrower.

Restrictive covenants are restrictions imposed through a deed applicable on a group of homes, lots or property which is part of a development project.

The covenants stipulate the minimum size of the property allowed, the number of homes that can be built on a lot and the type of construction the homes may be.
