McKinnon & Anor v E Surv Ltd (formerly known as GA Valuation & Survey Ltd)




LTL 14/1/2003; (2003) 20 EG 149 2003-01-14

Where a surveyor’s report negligently failed to advise further investigations to ascertain whether past structural movement had ceased or was continuing, the correct measure of damages was the difference between the purchase price and the open-market value of the property in its true condition at the valuation date in light of all the evidence available to the court at the date of assessment.
