Guidance for solicitors: managing the risk of Seller fraud in the aftermath of Dreamvar
Market Insight 2023年5月30日 2023年5月30日
It’s nearly five years since the Court of Appeal handed down judgment in what has become commonly referred to as “Dreamvar”.
This guidance for solicitors, prepared by Ben Parks and Anne Eady in our professional liability team in partnership with Calum MacLean of QBE Risk solutions, explores the ongoing impact of the Dreamvar decision. It does so using real life “imposter” scenarios which have resulted in claims against conveyancers (acting for both Sellers and Buyers) and seeks to draw out potentially useful “take-aways” for practitioners.
