Legally Brief: contracting out of extended time limits under the Defective Premises Act – is it ever possible? 


Share

In the second of a two part series covering the possibilities for 'contracting out' of statutory time limits for pursuing claims, Olivia Jenkins is joined by Miguel Henderson of Counsel at Gatehouse Chambers to discuss changes to the Defective Premises Act.

Their discussion focuses on whether or not it is possible to contract out of widely extended time limits for pursuing claims under the Defective Premises Act, who may owe a duty under this legislation (and to whom), and potential defences to claims relating to historic breaches of this legislation.
