As a developer, avoiding delays in the delivery of vacant possession and minimising the payment of liquidated damages or liquidated ascertained damages (LAD) to purchasers is critical to profitability and sustainability. Join us in this webinar as our speakers explain how the period for completion is calculated, and recent developments in case law on the delivery of vacant possession. This knowledge is essential for developers seeking to mitigate risks and ensure compliance.

  • Delivery of vacant possession and the connection of utilities
  • Notice of vacant possession and the delivery of keys
