Injunctions are court orders which compel a party to either stop doing a particular activity or, in some instances, forcing them to carry out a certain action. An injunction can be applied to individuals, corporations and even government entities.
Injunctive relief is an equitable remedy and is not usually a first point of call for people, but rather a type of relief relied upon when most other avenues are either exhausted, or are simply not appropriate.
Urgent applications for injunctive relief are sometimes required for any range of issues including:
amongst a host of other potential, actual or threatened wrongs which would cause irreparable harm in the absence of immediate injunctive relief.
Injunctions in the property and construction industry may be used in circumstances (among numerous other examples) where:
Builders and developers in particular ought to be aware of the types of injunctions which can be made and how they might affect construction works.
Urgent advice should be obtained in any circumstance where you feel that work is being done or some act is being performed that is going to cause you significant harm or damage in order to determine what the most appropriate course of action to take is and, if applicable, immediately prepare the relevant documentation to seek such relief.
