Contingent liabilities: TCGA92 S49
TCGA92/S49 deals with these problems as they arise in three specific types of contingent liability. It applies to
disposals of land
- any liability remaining with or assumed by the person who assigns a lease which is contingent on a default in respect of liabilities assumed by the assignee under the terms of the lease
- any contingent liability of the vendor or lessor of land in respect of any covenant required for quiet enjoyment or other obligation
disposals of any property other than land
- any contingent liability in respect of a warranty or representation made on the disposal. See CG14815+ for further guidance on warranties and representations.
