RECENT CASES / DEVELOPMENTS
Update: January 2016
Sale of Land – Breach of Contract
Contract for sale of land was executed in 2003 between the Defendants (as vendors) and Fleming Construction, which subsequently went into receivership.
Contract contained no details of consideration due and all outstanding details were to be concluded at “closing” of transaction.
Purchaser paid substantial cash deposit and parties agreed to future split of stamp duty benefit that was perceived to derive from the manner in which the sale was structured.
Consideration in split benefit due under contract was never discharged. Receiver of Fleming Construction sought orders directing the Defendants, as trustees, to perform certain obligations under the contract.
Held, orders sought by receiver refused, receiver cannot equitably insist on rights under the contract when he has failed to discharge the full consideration agreed in the contract.
