– for the location or element of airspace – the Law Society of Ireland General Conditions of Sale (2017 is the last edition) („Contract for Sale“); For construction work – The Law Society of Ireland /Construction Industry Federation Building Agreement (2001 is the last edition). In that case, the plaintiffs had entered into a contract with a developer (the first defendant) for the construction of their house. The contract included the compromise clause contained in the standard construction contract jointly adopted by the Law Society and the Construction Industry Association. (8th) „Common rights,“ which means that the contractor`s mandatory obligation is to carry out construction work „well and according to craftsmanship.“ 2 c): If what is built is slightly different from the plans, it will not invalidate the agreement. Given the increase in the number of new buildings, it is time to remind the profession of the ex-tempo decision of Judge Peter Kelly of June 15, 2009 in a case of Derek Healy and Geraldine Healy v. Whitepark Developments Limited and Paul Feeney. You can assume that buying a „new“ home or apartment is like buying a new washing machine or car and that the seller hands over a finished product in exchange for the agreed price, but that is not (legally) what is happening. A new house or apartment consists of two elements, the physical components that are built (ground, walls, roof, etc.) and the land (or sometimes in the case of an apartment in the airspace) where the building is located (or for an apartment, part of the building). The agreement to purchase a new house or apartment will therefore include these two elements, the completion of the work and the sale of the land or airspace. As a general rule, the two elements are combined in an agreement, but occasionally there will be a separate agreement for each element, for example, if the landowner and the party that agrees to do the work are not the same. The vast majority of agreements for the sale of new homes and dwellings are based on two documents: 4 (d): if the balance is not paid by the employer to the contractor pursuant to the agreement, the contractor may, with respect to the employer, reissue the employer`s payment for 14 days and, if the employer does not, the employer may consider such a nullity by the employer as a refusal.
