Company chief ordered to get a small house (7)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'small house' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'company chief ordered to get a' is the wordplay.
'chief' indicates taking the first letters.
'ordered' is an anagram indicator.
The first letter of 'company' is 'c'.
'togeta' is an anagram of 'ottage'.
(Other definitions for cottage that I've seen before include "simple accommodation", "Modest accommodation", "Small single-storey dwelling", "Country residence", "Small place", "To make a home", "Small living space", "bungalow", "small house" and "Country dwelling".)
