Sale of land on terms

Reference received: 3 June 1975

Note: This reference was the subject of a memorandum from the Commission to the Attorney General in 1986 suggesting that the reference, previously classified as a "standing reference", should be regarded as having been completed, since changes in land development and business practice had overtaken the need for further inquiry by the Commission.

Terms of reference

To review the law relating to the sale of land on terms under contracts whereby payment is deferred or payment is made by instalments, with a view to protecting purchasers against oppressive conditions, and with a view to safeguarding, in the period between the date of contract and date of completion of the sale, the interests of a purchaser against his vendor and persons claiming under his vendor.
