McCormick v Nowland (1985) ATPR 40-852
This case is to be contrasted with McCormick v Nowland (1985) ATPR 40-852 in which the vendor's real estate agent falsely represented that the vendor's house was made of brick and that the swimming pool in the back yard was adjacent to a public park. The Court here held that a real estate agent owes a duty of care to a purchaser with respect to the information supplied about the property. Pincus J found that the agent had been negligent in respect of the information relating to the property and that the vendors, as principal were vicariously liable for the acts of their agent under the general law, because he found that the agent was acting within the authority of the vendor, at least insofar as it described the house to be built of brick
