What happens if on the day you expect to move into your new property or from your existing property, the buying or selling party defaults? There are various remedies and penalties available in these circumstances and we have specialist knowledge in this complex area of law. We also work closely with our strong commercial and residential property teams in relation to this and advise their clients regularly.
There might also be circumstances in which you have recently purchased a property and have now discovered certain problems with it, of which you suspect the sellers did not inform you during the sale process. This is also something upon which we can advise.
A recent example of our work includes acting for the sellers of a million-pound house who were sued by their purchasers for misrepresentation, leading to a trial that received widespread national press coverage.
How our solicitors can help you:
- We can also advise you on the best course of action for your situation
- Where possible we will seek to resolve the situation through negotiation and mediation rather than through costly court proceedings
- We can draw on the knowledge of specialist surveyors in this field with whom we regularly consult
