Professional Negligence Claim Against Conveyancer
When you are buying or selling a property, it can be stressful, especially if your transaction is not dealt with in a professional manner. Whether your transaction is handled by a licensed conveyancer or a Solicitor, you should expect it to be worked on to a sufficient standard.
Unfortunately, sometimes property transactions can go wrong. Our team of Professional Negligence Solicitors have a number of years of experience of dealing with sub-standard conveyancing, and we work closely with our own commercial and residential property Solicitors so that you can be assured that you are receiving the best advice possible.
Conveyancing transactions can give rise to a variety of problems if they are not handled properly.
Examples of negligence:
- A financial loss arising as a result of poor conveyancing
- A Solicitor or conveyancer giving the wrong advice
- Failing to carry out property searches and enquiries
- Failing to complete
- Failing to define the boundaries properly
- Failing to raise requisitions on title
- Failing to investigate the title properly
- Missing a deadline
Should I make a complaint?
You may wish to consider making a complaint directly to the firm about the issues which you have had with the conveyancing and seek to have the matter resolved via the firm’s own complaints procedure. You also have the option of referring the matter to the legal ombudsman. If, however, you remain unhappy and wish to consider other options, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
We understand that you may have lost faith in the previous Solicitor or conveyancer, however we can assure you that we will give you our honest advice from the outset and will seek to work with you in order to obtain compensation for financial losses arising from the negligent action.
