How DAS Law can help you
Our experienced team of dispute resolution lawyers will provide you with practical legal advice if you have a legal dispute with a surveyor.
These are some of the outcomes we can achieve for you:
Compensation for losses due to the surveyor’s negligence.
Repayment of the fees paid to the surveyor.
Compensation for the cost of redoing the services.
Important things to consider
Here are some important things you should be aware of regarding your legal problem:
- Proving that a surveyor was negligent can be very difficult. You must show that no reasonably competent surveyor would have given the advice your surveyor gave or would have failed to give the advice they failed to give.
- Proving negligence will often require compelling expert evidence from another qualified surveyor who is prepared to stand up in court if necessary.
- The time limit for bringing a claim could start to run from the date of the surveyor’s report or completion of your purchase, rather than when the surveyor’s negligence was discovered.
How much will it cost?
If you would like DAS Law to help you with your dispute with a surveyor, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including:
Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)
If you have a motor or home insurance policy this may include LEI cover. If so, your legal costs may be covered by that policy, subject to its terms and conditions. If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.
If you do not have LEI cover, then we have a host of fee options which we will tailor to suit your needs. Often we will take cases on a conditional fee basis (also known as “no win no fee”).
Where this is not suitable we offer fixed fees and discounted hourly rates. For certain cases we will also consider a damages based agreement, where we receive a limited proportion of damages if the case is successful and nothing if it is not.
Our legal advisers are always happy to discuss our fee options with you in more detail.
