We were not aware of the covenant until 2 hours before signing on the day at solicitors office .The original advert for the property has no mention of a covenant attached Due to circumstances in my partners health we had to sell our old home it was only then that we applied for and were successful with planning application

I assume this covenant restricts/prohibits development. Do you have a copy of the title?

Your solicitor left it very late to advise you of the presence of the covenant. Were you advised in writing? , were you advised, again in writing, about the implications and potential 'solutuons'?
