I want to get the covenant removed but will need the neighbours consent as they are the beneficiaries of the covenant. .
There are 6 neighbours at the top of the road in flat , the flat has a large garden 150ft deep which backs on to the plot I want to buy. The plot I want to buy and build on nieghbours the owner of the plots property- so he isn't an issue.
After his house is another property and directly opposite on the other side of the road is another property (it's at the bottom of a small close )
The neighbours in the flats are against the build. Although once built the house will not affect the enjoyment of their property at all as the land is on a slight slope and there are trees in between what would be my house and there garden.
How would you approach them? Any personal experience if you've been in a similar situation.
I can only imagine it's the building work which has put them off?
I was hoping to tug on the heart strings- I am not a developer and it's a house I want to live in. I am local to the area and have lived here my whole life.
(Current owner lives up North and is a developer)
Any experiences or advice?
