Completion problems and solutions

Recorded on: 14/02/2023

This webinar will focus on the completion of property sale and purchase contracts and the problems that can arise, including:

  • Completion – what does it entail – what changes at completion?
  • What do the Standard Commercial Property Conditions say?
  • Bespoke clauses in sale and purchase agreements relating to completion
  • Requisitions on title and completion statements
  • The Law Society code for completion – the nature of the trustee duty
  • Identity issues – Dreamvar and other cases – ID check expectations
  • Discharge of mortgages
  • Issues where the completed transaction needs to be registered at the Land Registry – the registration gap and issues with it – the “boomerang” lease (On v Gilesports)
  • Problems at completion – notices to complete – “ready willing and able” – termination/rescission, specific performance, forfeiting the deposit
  • Vacant possession – what does it mean – fixtures, fittings and chattels
