Property Disputes

Paula Sutherland & Associates has acted in various disputes relating to the purchase and sale of property.

She has acted for purchasers and vendors in relation to (but not limited to):

  • contractual interpretation and the consequential ability to compel or resist performance of a sale contract;
  • actions for specific performance;
  • claims relating to pre-contractual statements, such as the quality of the property or the existence of building or other approvals; and
  • negotiations to amend contracts where a dispute has arisen, such as an adjustment to the purchase price.

Paula has acted as counsel for clients when property disputes have escalated to the commencement of court proceedings.  She understands the personal distress that is associated with disputes of this nature and provides a consultative service to clients, explaining available options and executing instructions expediently, whilst answering questions clients have as the matter progresses.
