Professional negligence: The tests

Succeeding in a claim for professional negligence against a surveyor involves establishing:

  • • The extent of the duty owed by the surveyor, usually by reference to the terms of engagement but also through the actions of the surveyor
  • • Breach of duty
  • • Demonstrating that the breach of duty has led directly the loss
  • • Proving the amount of the loss under heads of claim recognised by the law

At Meade King Solicitors we will:

  • • Identify the real issues at an early stage.
  • • Anticipate the sort of defence which is likely to be argued.
  • • Assess the prospects of success of the professional negligence claim.
  • • Tell you what is involved in pursuing your claim for professional negligence.
  • • Where appropriate, agree a process to encourage settlement.

In the great majority of cases, share the risk involved by operating under conditional fee arrangements "no win no fee".


Our specialist solicitors give clients the benefit of decades of experience of claims against surveyors to achieve the best outcome. Our expertise is recognised in the leading legal directories, Chambers and Legal 500.
