The Documents and Precedents Committee is a cornerstone of ADLS and was established in response to the profession’s need for reliable and universally accepted forms. The Committee has an unparalleled record of producing high quality standard forms and precedents, including the prestigious Agreement for Sale and Purchase of Real Estate and the Commercial Deed of Lease. Its continued success lies in attracting specialist lawyers from a range of property and commercial disciplines who have a passion for the role of the forms, the provision of high quality and accurate drafting advice, and who like finding practical solutions for lawyers in light of constant developments in legislation and practice.
The principal functions of the Committee are to ensure that documents currently published by the ADLS are constantly revised to take account of legislative changes and the impact of case law and to expand the range of documents and precedents currently offered by ADLS. The Committee is always interested to hear from practitioners with proposals for other forms required in the market and are welcome to contact the Committee Secretary, Melissa Fini by email firstname.lastname@example.org with comments and suggestions.
