Balaratnam v Santander UK plc

Practice – Summary judgment. The defendant bank succeeded on its appeal against a master's dismissal of its application for strike out or reverse summary judgment concerning a claim brought by the claimant borrower for, among other things, breach of contract in respect of a loan agreement, relating to a proposed development in Great Yarmouth. The Queen's Bench Division ruled that the material produced by the claimant had not come close to providing any proper basis for complaint about the conduct of the bank in the present case. It held that each head of claim relied on in the original claim particulars had been bound to fail and that the master ought to have granted summary judgment to the bank on the entire claim.
