Claims against Surveyors
Your surveyor may have given bad advice on property valuation or missed a defect and which has caused you to suffer financial loss. Or even advised on the wrong level of survey. The professional negligence team at Mayo Wynne Baxter can help you claim compensation for your financial losses.
How can we help?
• First, we can provide an initial appraisal of your case – our specialist team can analyse your case and advise on the necessary steps and lead you through your claim (a 'plan of action’). This will include advice on how to pursue a claim for compensation. Most professional negligence claims against surveyors will involve expert evidence. We will help to recommend suitable professionals.
• Second, we will start your claim which will include following the Professional Negligence Pre–action Protocol. See our page on ‘Working Together’.The Protocol now encourages parties to try and resolve any disputes without resorting to the court. But if the Protocol does not produce a settlement, then we will advise on court proceedings and set out a plan of action to a trial of your claim.
If the claim is for service quality then these claims should be directed to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) or the National Association of Valuers and Surveyors (NAVA).
