    Welcome to the third edition of the quarterly review prepared by Hammonds' Property @ction Team. In this issue we look at the following:

    • Can the seller keep a deposit if the purchaser fails to complete?;
    • Sub-letting at less than passing rents; Admissibility of pre-contract negotiations in interpreting an ambiguous contract;
    • Relocation, relocation...;
    • Interrogating the witness: Removing a hiding place - the arbitrator's view.
