Cause Of Action In Professional Negligence Claim Against Solicitors Accrued When Fraudulent Property Transaction Was Completed

Nouri v. Marvi & Ors, CA, 14/10/10

The Court of Appeal held that in a professional negligence claim by a property owner against solicitors who had been instructed in respect of a fraudulent transfer of his property, the cause of action accrued when the fraudulent transfer was completed, not when it was registered. The property owner sustained actual and immediate financial loss upon completion of the sale, in the form of a diminution in the open market value of the property.
