Jones and another v Oven and another

Land – Disposal of land. The Chancery Division made a declaration in favour of the claimants in a dispute as to the true construction of the phrase 'retained land' in a restrictive covenant. Specific performance of the covenant was ordered to transfer the land. However, only nominal damages were awarded in respect of the failure to do so, since the claimants had failed to prove that they had intended to establish a business on it at the relevant time.
