Range of Defences
There is usually a range of defences available to the business owner, some of which are relatively technical. We have experience in conducting the following defences:
- Penalty clauses
- Agent not the effective cause of the sale
- Breach of the money laundering regulations
- Breach of the Estate Agents Act 1979
Although litigation is always uncertain, we have a high success rate in defending claims of this type. We are proud to be endorsed by CEBTA.
If you have received a letter of claim from a business sales agent, we can advise you on your options and write a letter of response on your behalf for a fixed fee of £360.
