Anderson v Dickie: SCS 26 May 1914

A disposition of lands by X contained a declaration that it should not be lawful for A (the disponee) or his foresaids to sell or feu part of the lands disponed except under certain specified conditions as to the number and value of the dwelling-houses to be erected thereon, ‘which restriction shall be a real burden affecting the said lands, and shall operate as a servitude in favour of’ B (another disponee of X) and his foresaids in all time coming.
Held that the declaration merely placed upon A and his heirs a personal prohibition against selling or feuing except under the conditions specified, and did not constitute the restriction a real burden on the lands, and that, accordingly, a singular successor of B was not entitled to interdict a singular successor of A from contravening the restriction.
