Removal of Restrictive Covenants on Converted Leasehold Land

11 Mar 2013

The NSW Crown Lands Division has recently announced a review of the restrictive covenants placed on previously converted perpetual leasehold land. A land owner can now make an application to have the restrictive covenants removed from the title of such land. An application fee of $356.00 per landholding is payable.  In most cases, it is anticipated that the restrictive covenant will be removed unless the previously converted perpetual leasehold land has high conservation value and either adjoins or is located within 100 meters of a National Park Estate, or that contains or is within 100 meters of wilderness or identified wilderness areas.
