228. Damages for reversioner.

Where a reversioner sues in respect of a nuisance, the damages awarded should be the amount by which the value of the reversion is lessened by the injury1. However, loss of rent due to the existence of prejudice against the neighbourhood arising from fear of a recurrence of the nuisance cannot be recovered, nor can compensation for the diminution which a temporary nuisance may cause in the present resale value
