Avoiding negligence in property development transactions

Recorded on: 17/01/2023

There is a great deal of scope for solicitors’ negligence in property development transactions – as the cases show.  This webinar will focus on those areas where it is only too easy for costly mistakes to be made, including:

  • Tax issues – consulting Counsel, excluding liability
  • Responsibility for experienced clients
  • The position of unrepresented third parties (such as ‘amateur’ sellers)
  • Must past advice be kept under review?
  • What should you do if the other side makes a mistake?
  • Planning issues in conditional contracts and options
  • Common problems with overage
  • Issues with SIMs (Searches of the Index Map)
  • Lessons from 3 cases decided in 2022, namely:
    • Mervyn Lambert Plant Ltd v Knights Solicitors
    • Aurium Real Estate London Ultra Prime Limited v Mishcon de Reya LLP
    • Spire Property Development LLP v Withers LLP
