Dhaliwal v Hussain and another

Contract – Breach of contract. The claimant dentist, who had entered into a contract with the defendants to purchase a dental practice, was entitled to damages of £140,000 for misrepresentation in relation to a statement made in reply to pre-contract enquiries, concerning the practice's turnover, which the defendants had known to be false. So held the Chancery Division, which further ruled that the claimant was also entitled to damages for consequential loss, breach of an express warranty and breach of contract in relation to the removal of stocks.
