The Bold Group have sent round a circular indicating that the case is Dreamvar-v-Mishcon and is on Lawtel. I have not seen it yet.

Property vacant. Fraudster Seller's solicitor relied on a TV Licence and newly issued driving licence as ID. Monies sent to China. Seller's solicitor not liable to buyer.

Buyer succeeds against his solicitors. The rationale appears to be Buyer's solicitor was in breach of trust for paying away the money to the solicitor for a fraudster (instead of the actual seller); although they acted reasonably and honestly they ought not fairly to be excused as they had PI cover.

All very worrying.
