Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?10:43 AM, 20th May 2019

I am in the process of purchasing a property to use as a small (C4 use class) HMO. The Title deeds includes the following Covenant by the Transferee, “Not to use the property except as a single private dwelling house”.
That’s all it says in this respect. Does this covenant prevent the use of this property as a small HMO? There are lots of case law relating to similar covenant terms however they seem to relate more to the number of dwellings on a plot of land as opposed to use as a small HMO.
Is there any case law specific to my issue?
