On the Case: Who pays for property fraud, post-Dreamvar?

The Court of Appeal has given judgment in two much-discussed cases that raise important questions over who should be held liable to victims of conveyancing fraud: Dreamvar (UK) Ltd v Mishcon de Reya and P&P Property Ltd v Owen White & Catlin LLP – each of which involves a fraudulent “seller” making off with a would-be purchaser’s funds.
