Delivery of vacant possession is one of the most important stages in any real estate transaction. Failure to deliver vacant possession may be grounds for a claim for breach of contract. This webinar seeks to clarify the concept of what vacant possession generally entails, the possible implications of not providing vacant possession, and also to share some examples of how different contractual interpretations have led parties to be in dispute as to whether vacant possession has actually been delivered.
