Sometimes special circumstances apply to the use and development of the land. The following are some matters to be aware of:
• Restrictive Covenants – If one applies, the landowner will need to check if the construction of a small second dwelling would be in breach of the covenant.
• Section 173 agreements – If there is an agreement that has been applied to the land, conditions or restrictions on the use or development of land could also apply.
• Easements – an easement may mean there are restrictions on the use of that piece of land.
