Default Restrictive Covenant


I am looking to convert my garage (which is attached to my house already) into another reception room but i have noticed the below restrictive covenant in my title deeds:

"That no hut caravan shed house on wheels or other chattel adapted or intended for use as a dwelling or sleeping apartment nor any booths shows swings or roundabouts should stand or be erected or placed on the said piece or parcel of land."

Is anyone able to confirm if i would be breaching this covenant if i were to convert my garage?

Many Thanks

Default Re: Restrictive Covenant

Hello, I have only just seen yr message. When we bought our place in Dec 2013 it said pretty much the same on the title deed, that no hut boat caravan or shed was to be placed on the land (this meant the whole plot). Are you sure that what is being said refers to just where the garage is now? besides, if you were simply going to convert the garage (not build a new extension in place of) then surely the 'build' pre-exists? and was put there by whoever originally built the house? I know that alot of old covenants can be removed from title deeds so it may be worth looking into. Every house around us have out buildings and sheds so we went ahead and had two sheds installed in the garden, afterall if anyone did object then the whole street having sheds would be our 'defence' !
