Example text

27 In contrast to the position with negligent statements, the attempt in a number of leading cases since the 1970s to extend liability for pure economic loss to negligent conduct has largely failed. The initial momentum for such an extension was provided by Anns v Merton which concerned structural damage in a building that had been caused by defective foundations. The House of Lords allowed the recovery in tort of the pure economic loss caused by the need to carry out repairs so that the property was no longer a threat to health and safety.

What will be considered by a court as ‘reasonable’ depends on the specific facts of a particular case and the attitude of the judge. Precedent is seldom cited or useful in this respect. However, in general the assessment of reasonableness involves a consideration of three main factors: (a) the degree of likelihood of harm, (b) the cost and practicability of measures to avoid it, and (c) the seriousness of the possible consequences. The application and balancing of these factors is best illustrated by reference to actual cases.

The House of Lords held that a defendant would be liable for such negligent mis-statements if: (a) there was a ‘special relationship’ based upon an assumption of responsibility between the parties, (b) the defendant knew or ought to have known that the plaintiff was likely to rely upon his statement, and (c) in all the circumstances it was reasonable for the plaintiff to so rely on the defendant’s statement. 24 In accordance with the retreat from an acceptance of a general principle of liability in negligence and, in particular, its extension to economic loss generally, the circumstances where the courts will now recognise the required ‘special relationship’ may have narrowed since the 1970s.
