He wasn’t the only property owner worrying in that time of confusion, but arguably any fall would have to be enormous for him to lose out: the Land Registry shows that Smith bought the flat in 2003 for £162,000; today, similar properties nearby sell for almost three times as much.
Well, yes Aditya. Losing out is losing from the current market value, not the purchase price.
