This decision is unlawful. The Judges have forgotten who they are and who they represent. Henry II didn't come back from a scrap in France and establish the Court upon the basis that when asked to decide a question, he would toss a coin and put the blame on the lawyer. Anon at 14.59 is right. It's all very well putting on a full bottomed wig and a pair of tights and unloading on solicitors but what exactly were Mishcons supposed to do to make sure ? What were the sellers solicitors meant to do? Completion meetings with 60 years root of title on paper and bankers drafts would do the trick I suppose. Perhaps we should all start insisting upon it?
