Clutterbuck and another v Cleghorn (sued as Judicial factor to the Estate of Nichol, Deceased)

Property – Development. The claimants failed in their proceedings against the deceased's estate for damages for fraudulent, alternatively negligent, misrepresentation, money due under a joint venture agreement concerning property redevelopment and for damages for breaches of the agreement. In particular, the Chancery Division rejected the claimants' arguments that they had been induced to enter into the agreement by an oral misrepresentation by the deceased that the property had been valued at no more than £3m, rather than the previously agreed £3.45m.
