Session 1: Managing Changing Circumstances Between Contract and Settlement in Property Matters

What can go wrong between signing a contract and settlement? Turns out, quite a bit. While most settlements stay on track, there can be a significant change that will severely impact the transaction. This session will examine some of those circumstances and what steps property lawyers need to take to get back on track or head down a different path, including:

  • What happens if one of the parties dies before completion?
  • Where two parties own the property jointly, how will the death of one impact the sale?
  • Can a purchaser be compelled to a complete the contract where time delays may be significant?
  • Strategies for negotiating with vendors or purchasers in the event of death
  • Loss of capacity due to illness or infirmity – impact on contract of sale and when powers of attorney can save the day
  • What happens to a contract and deposit if the vendor or purchaser subsequently declares bankruptcy?
  • Drafting special conditions to deal with death and other potential situations, including time extensions in such situations

  • It was just like being at a well run conference but in many ways better. 
  • This option is of great assistance to country practitioners.
  • The live online conference format worked well and made the speakers more engaging than a recording.
  • Our team used the boardroom.  We could talk and discuss the presentation without feeling we were imposing on others and you could submit a question, which we did.  All from the comfort of our own office.
  • The conference was well organised and the email links very useful.

Lawyers can claim up to 2.5 CPD units/points (substantive law).
