Webinar Finding Out About Developments After Exchange! Recent Cases - On-Demand Webinar


All conveyancers are aware of the principle of ‘caveat emptor’ – let the buyer beware. The fact that the seller has to give only limited information to a buyer means that a prudent conveyancer will raise a large number of enquiries and carry out extensive searches prior to exchange of contracts. But problems do still occur as is demonstrated by two recent cases where buyers only found out about proposed development near to the property that were buying after exchange of contracts. The cases are interesting as they produced two different results.

The webinar will cover:

  • ‘Caveat emptor’ in outline
  • The seller’s duty of disclosure
  • Thorp v Abbotts 2015
  • Orientfield Holdings v Bird and Bird 2015
  • What advice should a prudent conveyancer give to their client when considering replies to the Property Information Form and additional enquiries?
