Completion Notice in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Woodar Investment Development Ltd v Wimpey Construction U.K. Ltd
    • House of Lords
    • 14 Feb 1980

    Repudiation is a drastic conclusion which should only be held to arise in clear cases of a refusal, in a matter going to the root of the contract, to perform contractual obligations.

  • British and Commonwealth Holdings Plc v Quadrex Holdings Inc.
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 23 Feb 1989

    Why should a party who has not completed in compliance with the terms of a contract he has entered into, be entitled to yet longer time before he can be given notice to perform it?

  • Raineri v Miles
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 06 Jul 1979

    At common law a term of a contract stipulating when the contract should be performed was always regarded as an essential term of the contract, but, as Lord Parker pointed out in Stickney v. Keeble, (1915) Appeal Cases, 586 at 415, in contracts for the sale of land equity, having a concurrent jurisdiction, did not look upon the stipulation as to time in precisely the same light.

  • Delta Vale Properties Ltd v Mills
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 08 Dic 1989

    I can, for my part, see no reason for drawing any such distinction. In my judgment, notices to complete served under Condition 23, if they are to be valid, must be sufficiently clear and unambiguous to leave a reasonable recipient in no reasonable doubt as to how and when they are intended to operate.

  • Eminence Property Developments Ltd v Heaney
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 21 Oct 2010

    So far as concerns repudiatory conduct, the legal test is simply stated, or, as Lord Wilberforce put it, “perspicuous”. It is whether, looking at all the circumstances objectively, that is from the perspective of a reasonable person in the position of the innocent party, the contract breaker has clearly shown an intention to abandon and altogether refuse to perform the contact.

  • Buckland v Farmar & Moody
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 10 Feb 1978

    In that case his conduct was not, in my judgment, such as to amount to a waiver of the strict requirements of the notice to complete. Accordingly, in my judgment the purchasers remained at 7th February and thereafter in default under the notice to complete, and there was no negligence on the part of Mr. Moody in failing to advise them otherwise.

  • United Scientific Holdings Ltd v Mayor, Aldermen and Burgesses of the County Borough of Burnley now The Council of the Borough of Burnley
    • House of Lords
    • 23 Mar 1977

    So upon the question of principle which these two appeals were brought to settle, I would hold that in the absence of any contra-indications in the express words of the lease or in the interrelation of the rent review clause itself and other clauses or in the surrounding circumstances the presumption is that the time-table specified in a rent review clause for completion of the various steps for determining the rent payable in respect of the period following the review date is not of the essence of the contract.
