The buyer may be required as a term of the contract of sale to enter into covenants, either positive or negative, affecting the enjoyment of the land, or of neighbouring property. A covenant to pay for the maintenance of roads is an example of a positive covenant whereas a covenant not to use premises as a shop is a negative or restrictive covenant. These covenants are binding as between the covenantor and covenantee as the immediate contracting parties. However, the covenants may also be enforceable by the seller and his successors in title against the buyer and his successors
