Surveyors are specialists who are responsible for assessing how sound a property is. They must look out for any defects, see if there’s potential for small cracks to become major problems, and futureproof the properties and buildings they assess.
To do this, they train for years to build their skills and knowledge. As well as undergoing intensive training, they are fully regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), which sets out the standards that must be met by each qualified surveyor. If they fail to meet these standards, they could lose their accreditation, and therefore their credibility and ability to continue surveying work.
All surveyors owe their clients a duty of care. When they are negligent in this provision of care, they could cause clients to suffer a financial loss.
If your surveyor’s mistake or failure to properly follow procedures has caused you to lose money, you might be able to claim compensation due to surveyor negligence.
What is surveyor negligence?
For most surveyor negligence claims, the main issue is that the level of care fell below the standards expected of a qualified, fully accredited surveyor. By failing to provide the expected amount of care in their role, the surveyor has acted negligently.
You don’t have to have necessarily directly hired the surveyor to have a case for negligence. In many mortgage valuations, for example, the surveyors are instructed by the mortgage lender. However, even in this instance, if the surveyor has failed to take care when carrying out their valuation, you could still seek legal advice about surveyor negligence.
