Suing a surveyor is possible when you can prove that they have failed in their legal duty of care to produce an accurate survey. If this happened to you, you could be entitled to compensation!
The advice of a surveyor or valuer is so important as the purchase of a home or business is likely to be one of the largest costs to you throughout your lifetime. Mistakes by surveyors can prove very costly. Over valuing your property can mean you pay over the odds for your home or business. Missing potential problems in a survey that will require necessary future work will mean you miss out on the opportunity to negotiate a reduction in the property price.
Common areas of negligence by a surveyor include:
•over valuing the property
•failure to assess the property properly
•failure to warn of potential problems
•failure to identify issues such as damp, subsidence or rot
