A core area of expertise at Landmark Chambers is in the field of restrictive covenants. Whether acting for clients wanting to use land in a way that would breach covenants, or for those with the benefit of covenants trying to prevent uses of land, our barristers have appeared in many of the most important and challenging restrictive covenant cases in recent years. These cases raise issues about the interpretation of covenants, the enforceability of covenants and the remedies available if covenants have been breached.
We regularly represent applicants and respondents on applications to the Lands Chamber for the discharge or modification of covenants under section 84 of the Law of Property Act 1925.
Our clients have included London estates seeking to control development using schemes of management and FTSE 100 companies engaged in disputes about whether business uses will infringe covenants.
