Conveyancing Disputes

Landmark provides expertise in the resolution of disputes arising out of the conveyancing process, whether relating to the acquisition and disposal of freehold and leasehold interests. For our work specifically related to property development and overage, see here; for our work on land registration, see here; and for our work on property-related professional negligence, see here.


Our experience and expertise extends to disputes arising from all aspects of conveyancing and includes all forms of dispute resolution, dispute avoidance and advisory work in this area. We act for a wide range of parties in a wide range of contexts, from private individuals involved in domestic conveyancing disputes to national housebuilders and major commercial developers.

Landmark’s experience and expertise covers disputes arising at all stages for the conveyancing process, including: misrepresentation and misdescription; specific performance; rescission, repudiation and frustration; actions for the recovery of deposits; penalties; disputes as to adequacy of title; disputers relating to the delivery of vacant possession; disputes as to completion; identity theft and fraud; the effects of intervening insolvency, including escheat; estoppels arising from the conveyancing process; informal boundary agreement; and actions in respect of solicitors’ undertakings, including under the Code for Completion.

We can also offer advice on the conveyancing process, excluding the taxation aspects thereof.
