Claims against Architects

Claims against Architects and other Construction Professionals

The professional negligence team at Mayo Wynne Baxter has been involved in numerous claims against architects generally for ‘defective’ design work or inadequate monitoring and inspection of the contractors work and progess. For example providing incorrect advice on a building project, preparing inadequate plans or failing to correctly prepare the building project or not overseeing a project correctly or failed to keep to the agreed budget.

How can we help?

• First, we can provide an initial appraisal of your case and advice on how to pursue a claim for compensation.  As most professional negligence claims against architects will involve expert evidence we will help to recommend suitable professionals including other architects, building surveyors, quantity surveyors or project managers if there is remedial work required on a project.

• Second, we will start your claim which will include following the Pre-Action Protocol for Construction and Engineering Disputes which 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.
