Furthermore, the sale will be subject to covenants preventing religious and political use or nuisance, disturbing divine worship. The plot may not be used for anything other than as a single private dwelling house with a general prohibition on further development. That said the vendors understand that a purchaser will want to refurbish and extend the existing dwelling or consider its replacement with a new single dwelling house and will allow maximum flexibility in this regard.

Overage Provisions - The vendors recognise that the property has development potential. Save for any development in line with the restrictive covenants outlined above and the exceptions noted below, the vendors consent will be needed for any change of use or redevelopment of part or all of the site.
The overage provisions permit the buyer to build the following: summerhouse, greenhouse, garage, granny annex, stable, garden shed or other similar outbuilding, the creation of a tennis court or swimming pool facilities used in connection with the dwelling-house.
Any uplift in value for each and every planning/development event will be shared 50-50 between the buyer and the Board of Finance, less the costs of securing the uplift.
Any disposal of title will be subject to the new purchaser entering into a new deed in the same form, directly with the Board of Finance.
The Overage agreement provisions will span 80 years
Overage is triggered if the land is sold to a third party with planning consent granted but not implemented; or on the commencement of works to implement the permission.
- Overage does not relate to increase in value in the existing property, nor improvements and extensions to the existing building.
- Neither would overage relate to a project that demolished the existing house and redeveloped the site with a single larger higher value residential dwelling.
- Overage only applies where planning permission is secured for more than one dwelling [or for example a care home/commercial scheme].
