Welcome to Just Answer, I am a solicitor in England and Wales and I will be dealing with your case today.
Kindly note, I am not available for phone calls at the moment, however I can easily assist you via this online chat.
If a phone call is not required then please ignore phone call request pop-up, they get generated automatically without any input from the expert, so I have no control over these requests.
Please attach your document here.
I will go through it and will be with you in a short while.
Thank you for your patience.
Could you please confirm if you have made payments as per the payment structure ?
Under the English contract Laws, there is no legal requirement for having a written contract.
Contract can be implied, verbal and confirmed by the conduct of the parties.
If the main terms of the contract have been agreed verbally or in correspondence, emails, then parties can enforce this contract, even if no contract has been signed.
If the developer has accepted your payments as per the payment structure, then a binding contract has been formed, this contract has been confirmed by the conduct of the parties.
You can take the other side to the court for the breach of the contract.
Scheduled Contract completion date was of sept 2020.
Could you please elaborate what happened since Sept 2020?
You can approach the court for recovering of the amount paid and not for completion of the contract.
You would be able to say No to the contract citing your reasons.
What your solicitor who is working on this file , has to say about it?
He/she is better placed to provide a resolution to the issue at hand.
Yup, you have a case to get the refund of the amount paid, plus you can claim 8% annual interest on the total amount due.
8% interest on the amount you have paid , not including the rent you were expecting.
You can not claim both, if you were given rental , then their part of contractual obligation is being completed, and they can ask you to pay the remaining amount and complete the sale then.
you do not want that, you are not enforcing the contract here , you are looking to get the payments back.
So, you paid this 9K for both (78 plus 80) spaces?
Right, keep them separate .
Yes, it does.
But keep them separate as these are two different contracts.
Thank you for using Just Answers. Enjoy rest of your day. Best wishes.
