Where there had been a purported and invalid transfer and remortgage by a husband of a property owned by the husband and his wife as joint tenants, a firm of solicitors, which had acted on behalf of the mortgagor alone in respect of the transfer and which had no reason to believe that the signature on the transfer and a letter of consent was forged, owed no duty of care to the wife, and was therefore not liable in negligence.
