building scheme

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A defined area of land sold by a single vendor in plots for (or following) development, each plot being sold subject to similar restrictive covenants that are clearly intended to benefit the whole. For example, restrictive covenants prohibiting trade or excessive noise are frequently imposed on the sale of plots on a housing estate, to maintain the character of the estate as a whole. The law allows the owner of any plot in a building scheme to enforce such covenants against any other plot owner, even though neither was a party to the document that imposed the covenants.

Subjects: Law.
