Date: Wednesday 8 June 2022
Duration: Approximately 1 Hour

Following on from a sale, and often during the pre-settlement phase, it can become apparent that representations made about the property are not correct or are misleading. What can be done at this stage and what role do property lawyers have in this process? This session provides a practical guide to the application of consumer and contract law in such situations and immediate next steps, including:

  • When will a representation be considered misleading?
  • What steps can and should be taken when the misrepresentation becomes known?
  • What remedies are available to a misled purchaser?
  • Strategies for negotiation with the vendor
  • How will the regulator respond to a complaint?
  • Cases and examples
