Damages for breach of contracts for the sale of land

Sydney presented a CPD seminar for UNSW Edge titled “Damages for breach of contracts for the sale of land” on 15 March.

The presentation explored the nuances of contractual damages, including:

  • Scenarios in which the vendor terminates & re-sells as either a loss or a profit.
  • Where the purchaser terminates for the vendor’s wrongful refusal to complete.
  • The relationship between a claim for damages and specific performance.
  • The operation of damages clauses in the Law Society of NSW / REI Standard Form.
  • Principles governing the assessment of interest on damages.

A select preview of the presentation is available below.
