Paying the price for loss of light
Pawlowski, Mark (2008) Paying the price for loss of light. Solicitors Journal, 152 (23). pp. 24-26. ISSN 0038-1047Full text not available from this repository.
Considers the Court of Appeal ruling in Forsyth-Grant v Allen on the principles to be applied in assessing damages for the loss of light. Outlines the method for calculating damages for loss of right to light, the type of amenity which will be included in calculations for loss of amenity and the process applied in this case for assessing damages arising from the loss of profits that would have been made by the owner of the right to light if they had negotiated to relax the covenant, with reference to case law. Notes the limits to damages available for hypothetical loss and the difference between this award of profits and an account of profits.
