Risk and Negligence in Property Transactions is a new textbook which takes an in-depth look at the various stages that take place, and specific issues that may arise, on the acquisition of land. It identifies the risks faced by solicitors acting for the buyer, seller and lender that may give rise to liability in negligence.
It is essential reading for solicitors who are instructed in relation to transactions concerning commerical and residential property, as well as litigation solicitors and barristers.
The book is edited by John de Waal QC with contributions from members of the Hardwicke Property and Construction Teams (Carl Brewin, John Clargo, Andy Creer, Jamal Demachkie, Amanda Eilledge, Daniel Gatty, Lina Mattsson, Louis Zvesper).
Copies are available from The Law Society.
