Claim against a surveyor or architect | Professional Negligence solicitors in Leeds, Harrogate, Wakefield, Bradford, Manchester and London

Claims against surveyors and architects are commonplace, especially in the current property market. The different scenarios which may lead to a claim against a surveyor which can include:

  • Failure to identify asbestos
  • Failure to correctly value the property
  • Failure to identify structural defects
  • Failure to properly supervise building works

There are a number of different surveys that a surveyor can undertake including mortgage valuation, homebuyer’s report and full structural survey.  The duty of care that a surveyor will owe you in these circumstances will vary depending on the level of survey that you commissioned.

Claims against surveyors and architects are usually dependent on obtaining supporting expert evidence from another suitably qualified surveyor or architect.  This report will need to highlight the errors made by the original surveyor and the likely impact on the value of the property that such omissions or errors would have had.
