A covenant is a binding legal requirement; what was the purpose the land is being used for?

My question the premises conveyed shall be used for single family homes or non-commercial agricultural and recreational uses only except in home offices and Bed an Breakfast businesses shall be allowed. No other commercial or industrial use of the property is allowed.
Real Estate Lawyer: legalgems, Arbitrator replied 1 year ago

That covenant would allow the property to be subdivided; it also allows for non commercial (so personal, non business use) use of the property.

There are restrictive covenants- which preclude certain types of activities on the land.

Covenants typically run with the land and are on the deed, or the chain of title.

These are binding on future owners of the property. They can be concurrent (mutual promises to be performed simultaneously), dependent (one promises only needs to be performed if the other party performs), or independent .

Yes, if it states that it shall be used for a certain purpose, then that would be controlling.

The Term "shall" legally means must- that no other use will be permitted other than those listed.
