Removing restrictive covenants can be done, but it is difficult. Here is an article that will help.

This is definitely a job for an attorney and I urge you to get one. I sold a house on a street with covenanted deeds. The original developer had a covenant that no one could alter the outside of a house without HIS (the developers) permission after he'd gone over the plans! Well, the subdivision was put in 30 years ago, no one knew where they developer was. It caused a bit of a headache.

This is really a legal question. Many attorneys will do a free consult. Try giving one a call to discuss, or please call Attorney Andrew Gould @ 603-434-3437. I am certain he will give you an update on this if you ask.

The key to dealing with any covenant is to know exactly what it says. I am assuming the land and therefore the covenant deals with Rockingham County.

This is really a job for an attorney and I would look for one in the Rockingham County area who specializes in real estate. If you would like some referrals, email me. A fellow Realtor, Barry Miller, whose answer follows, has attached a thoughtful piece that should be helpful--but my advice is, don't try to do anything legal without a lawyer.
