Property contracts: protecting the contract
A practice note on the issues to consider when drafting and negotiating a provision in a property sale contract to protect the buyer's interest in the contract between exchange and completion.
In most instances, the sale contract does not need to deal with the possibility that the buyer may register the contract. The note gives examples of situations where specific contractual provisions might be appropriate.
The note also briefly considers when it might be appropriate for the seller to protect the contract.
