Contractual disputes may vary widely. They include disputes over sale and purchase agreements, development agreements, options and rights of pre-emption.  One of the features of recent years is parties reviewing contracts made before September 2008 with a view to renegotiating them. In relation to residential property contractual disputes have arisen between developers and purchasers over contracts to purchase properties off-plan.

The claims arising out of contractual disputes include claims over forfeited deposits, and claims for specific performance and damages.

Sometimes contractual disputes arise because of a poorly drafted agreement. If so the client may have a professional negligence claim against his conveyancing solicitor.

As a result of many years dealing with property disputes we have obtained a good understanding of the commercial side of property which, we believe, gives us an advantage when it comes to contractual disputes resolution.
