A cost-efficient means of amending building materials covenants

Recently, we managed to modify a building materials restrictive covenant through the Supreme Court’s section 84 process–without advertising to beneficiaries.

We achieved it by applying to add in the words “or other materials with a rendered finish” after the brick and/or stone restriction.

This might not work in all cases, for there were peculiarities in the distribution of beneficiaries’ here, but we are often approached by developers wishing to construct a building out of contemporary building materials where there is a brick and/or stone restriction.

This may be one of the most cost effective means of doing it.
