Just to clarify then, the claimant can't argue that the limitation period is from the date that the breach was discovered and not the date of the contract. And not the date of completion.
1. Dear *****, you need to Rate the Answer to your first Question in order that you use the website properly. Then also Rate the Answer to this question. Otherwise there is no incentive to answer your Questions as your Expert does not get paid for answering your Questions unless you Rate the Answers.
2. Here material non disclosure runs from the date when the non disclosure was made. That is the date of the breach. The claimant will almost certainly argue that the date of breach runs from the date upon which the breach was reasonably discoverable. However, this is not a strong argument in the usual run of things. All reasonable checks can be made from the date of the contract. Additionally, the date of completion is the date the conveyance takes place, not the date the contractual relationship was established. Six years run from the date of the exchange of contracts, not the conveyance which is merely when the property gets conveyed pursuant to the contract.
