Contract disputes

Dealing with property issues can sometimes be complex - particularly when other parties are involved. That’s why contracts exist to help things run smoothly. And whether you own or rent property, at some stage you will probably enter into a contract with another party.

Most of the time, a contract serves to ensure that each party understands their rights and responsibilities and helps protect everyone involved. However, disagreements can arise and there may be a dispute about the terms of a contract. When this happens, it’s a good idea to seek legal advice to help you understand the terms of the contract and resolve whatever issues you are facing.

Types of Property Disputes

  1. Lease Disputes

    Disputes may arise between freeholders and leaseholders over the terms of a lease agreement. For example, who is responsible for repairs and maintenance?

  2. Construction Disputes

    These are disputes between property owners and contractors. Issues may include construction delays, poor workmanship or failure to comply with building regulations.

  3. Purchase Disputes

    Disputes can arise between buyers and sellers over issues like the condition of a property and failure to disclose defects.

  4. Boundary Disputes

    Neighbours may disagree about the location of property boundaries, access to easements or use of shared amenities.

  5. Insurance Disputes

    Property owners and insurance companies may disagree about who is responsible for paying for damage to a property, for example.

  6. Mortgage Disputes

    Disputes between mortgage lenders and owners can arise for many reasons. Reasons include the threat of repossession or unfair charges being applied to an account.

Contract disputes are disagreements between parties to a legally binding agreement.

Disputes can arise when one or more parties believe that another party has not fulfilled their obligations under the contract or has acted in breach of the terms of the contract.

Our solicitors can help you to prevent contract disputes from arising by drafting, analysing and negotiating agreements to reduce your risk.

However, if you are involved in a dispute, we will do everything possible to secure the best possible outcome for you.

Usually, disputes are resolved outside of court through negotiation, mediation, or arbitration. When the court process is unavoidable, we can prepare the strongest possible case and support you throughout.

If you are involved in a contract dispute, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible to resolve the issue swiftly. Lengthy disputes can be unnecessarily stressful and costly.

1. Breach of contract. When one party fails to perform their obligations under a contract

2. Non-performance. When one party cannot perform their obligations under a contract due to unforeseen circumstances.

3. Ambiguity. If the terms of a contract are vague, parties may disagree about interpretation.

4. Implied terms. Disputes can arise over implied terms of a contract. Implied terms are terms not explicitly stated in a contract but assumed between parties.

5. Termination. When one party wants to terminate a contract but the other party disagrees

6. Whatever the nature of a dispute, a solicitor can help you decide the best course of action.
