Turbervilles Winter Business Newsletter


Welcome to our Winter Newsletter.

In this edition, we see why many employers fear the removal of the default retirement age will lead to an increase in age related tribunal claims.

We have reports on how good contracts can help prevent late payments, and why landlords are getting tougher over break clauses.

A builder has been awarded £72,000 damages for an inaccurate valuation, and a director must pay compensation after hijacking a lucrative contract.

We see how an Appeal Court ruling could help business tenants with offices in houses, and why a builder’s warning about faults was not enough to avoid liability for damages.

UK businesses are calling for a halt to EU red tape and the Government is also looking at ways to reduce bureaucracy. We examine ways to ensure a smooth succession when handing over a business or selling it on.

There is also a report on how a minor failure was not enough to invalidate an agreement between two companies.

We hope you find these articles interesting. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like more information about the issues they raise, or any other legal issue affecting you or your business.
