Such covenants in deeds can be enforced.

The deeds (only dating back to the early 1950's) included a convenant that the land co...

Re: 101 ways to earn a little extra cash

16. If you can cook,offer to cook things for people - when my partner was out of work, I made cakes and took soups into work (just thought, if you are doing this for more than friends you might need to be inspected - best to keep it informal). Anyone preparing food for other people should have thei...
