A member of our team acted for a local authority that had transferred their housing stock under a LSVT. As part of that process the local authority provided the newly formed social landlord a warranty as to the state of the land transferred. The new owner found contamination present in a number of gardens and made a claim under the warranties. We successfully demonstrated that the liabilities were not as bad as first thought and following negotiating with the social landlord and the local authority’s insurer reached a satisfactory settlement on behalf of the local authority.
