As a homeowner or a purchaser of an investment property, you’ll usually have paid a surveyor to value the property and report on any defects which could have affected its value or your decision to buy the property.

If you later discover the surveyor missed major defects in the property or overvalued it, our highly experienced team of professional negligence solicitors could claim back costs from the surveyor and claim compensation to recover the difference in market value of the property.

You’ll understandably be frustrated with your surveyor, as the losses involved with incorrect valuations or unexpected building works can be substantial. We appreciate how stressful the situation can be and just how important it is to put things right.
