This is relevant to claims against most professionals.
  • Surveyors. In Hart v Large the Court of Appeal upheld a decision that a negligent surveyor was liable for the difference in value between the purchase price and the actual value of the property with all the defects, including latent defects, as his advice should have advised that there were risks which could not be assessed.
  • Lawyers: In Harcus Sinclair llp v Your Lawyers Ltd the Supreme Court has for the first time reviewed the law on solicitors’ undertakings. It has provided significant further guidance on the questions to be asked to determine whether an undertaking was given as a solicitor.
