Court battle over sellers questionnaire

We’ve reported on stories in the past where the information provided on the sellers questionnaire has resulted in a dispute between parties and yet again an ugly situation has arisen over claims that the sellers provided misleading or false information. After a failed property transaction in 2017, the potential buyers are currently fighting the case through the Central London County Court to obtain the return of their non-refundable deposit of £108,000 plus other costs as they were not told about the Little Chef and motel development planned nearby, claiming it would have adversely impacted the price and saleability of the property in future. The sellers on the other hand believe it would have no impact as it could not be seen from the property. It’s hoped the final judgment in this case will clear up any uncertainty around the completion of the sellers questionnaire, either way, this is one to watch. You can read more about this story here.
