Restrictive covenant

A restrictive covenant can "run with the land" (ie. A future owner will be subject to the restriction) in equity.

A restrictive covenant is a promise by one person to another, for example the person who is buying some land and the seller, and it will place restrictions not to do certain things with land/property. It relates to the land and not the individual and therefore "runs with the land". So the covenant will continue after the buyer has sold the land on to someone else. Although they may seem to be out of date and may have been made many years ago, restrictive covenants will continue to have effect.
