Contractual disputes may vary widely. They include disputes over
sale and purchase agreements, development agreements, options and
rights of pre-emption. One of the features of recent years is
parties reviewing contracts made before September 2008 with a view
to renegotiating them. In relation to residential property
contractual disputes have arisen between developers and purchasers
over contracts to purchase properties off-plan.
The claims arising out of contractual disputes include claims
over forfeited deposits, and claims for specific performance and
Sometimes contractual disputes arise because of a poorly drafted
agreement. If so the client may have a professional negligence
claim against his conveyancing solicitor.
As a result of many years dealing with property disputes we have
obtained a good understanding of the commercial side of property
which, we believe, gives us an advantage when it comes to
contractual disputes resolution.
