Thanks for your patience.

Negligent misstatement relates to a representation of fact, which is carelessly made, and is relied on by another party to their disadvantage. It is possible to claim for economic loss arising out of a negligent misstatement where no contractual or fiduciary relationship exists between the parties, provided however, that a special relationship or a sufficient proximity exists between the parties. Generally, a special relationship will exist where the adviser knows that the other party is justifiably relying on him for his skill, expertise or knowledge.

I hope I have clarified the position.

Thanks and stay safe.
