Details :

Building contracts can be executed in different formalities: by deed or in simple form.  What are the practical effects between different formalities, in particular what will be their effects on liabilities of different parties under the building contracts?  In this talk, the speakers aim to explain the distinctions between different formalities, and to understand their wider implications under the Limitation Ordinance (Cap. 347) by reference to some leading cases.
