Recorded: 2nd December 2020

It’s a fact of life that not all property settlements will have a happy ending. In this session we examine some examples and issues surrounding delays and defaults and what steps can be taken to manage the fallout and minimise the risks, including:

  • What are the standard termination provisions in the contract of sale?
  • Delayed settlements: practical and legal issues for your clients
  • Disappearing builders: contract consequences and deposit issues
  • Negotiating extensions to the contract completion date: – Greencapital Australia Pty Ltd v Pasminco Cockle Creek Smelter Pty Ltd [2019] NSWCA 53
  • Sunset clauses in developers’ contracts: - Conveyancing Act 1919 section 66ZL and Silver Star Fashions Pty Ltd v Dal Broi [2018] NSWSC 1445
  • Off-the plan sales – when can the purchaser refuse to complete? Dealing with defects and misrepresentation: Smogurezewski v AIT Investment Group Pty Ltd [2020] NSWSC 490; Victorsen v Esy Living Holdings Pty Ltd [2019] NSWSC 1721 and the new OTP legislation
