David asks his friend, Joseph, who is a trainee surveyor and works for Young & Elder, a firm of surveyors, if he would ask his firm to do the survey for him.

David proceeds and purchases Rose Cottage. Some months later, the chimney collapse through the roof, causing considerable damage to the roof and ceilings.
