Affirmative Covenent

A type of restrictive property covenant that obligates the landowner to act. This covenant runs with the land, meaning that even in transfer of ownership, the obligation remains with the new landowner. An example of an affirmative covenant may be an obligation for the landowner to maintain a certain level and type of insurance or to maintain the property at a certain standard.
