2. Facts: Norris had decided for some time that he wanted to purchase a motel. After looking at several different areas, he settled on Port Stephens in NSW as offering him both the potential for a business and the lifestyle he was seeking. He rang a number of real estate agents, inquiring whether they had any motels listed for sale. He finally found a motel and general business listed with an estate agent called Evatt. Evatt told Norris that once he got going in this business it would be a gold mine. Norris sought an accountant?s advice and then proceeded to buy the business. Within 6 months of buying the motel and general business Norris was broke because there were neither the tourist numbers not the local population to sustain the business.
Required: Can Norris sue the estate agent for his statements about the business? Will he succeed? Explain your answers.
