From Stephen Desmond's many conversations with conveyancers over the years and judging by the volume of associated case law, covenants and issues relating to breaches of covenant are matters that conveyancers have to deal with regularly. So, this is very much an evergreen subject. Also, the consequences of a breach of covenant can be catastrophic for client and conveyancer alike if they are not addressed correctly.
This webinar will examine common difficulties that can arise when a covenant has been breached, a potential dispute might arise with a neighbouring owner, or the covenant might be deemed to be onerous.
