Purewal v Countrywide Residential Lettings Ltd and others

Mortgage – Receiver. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the claimant's appeal against the dismissal of his claim for damages for breach of duty against the second and third defendant receivers. The judge had been right to dismiss the claim on the basis that any duties owed by the receivers in relation to an insurance claim had been owed exclusively to the claimant's trustee-in-bankruptcy, and the claimant had not produced the evidence necessary to establish his case on causation.
