Surveyors are often instructed to advise during the purchase of property. If a Surveyor makes a mistake, this can be expensive and may deprive the Buyer of seeking a reduction in the price of the property or, alternatively, may have caused the Client to buy a property that he would not have otherwise purchased.

Examples of some of the mistakes that may be made by Surveyors include:

  • Failing to spot a defect in the property;
  • Failing to inspect the property properly;
  • Failing to identify dry rot, woodworm, cracking and subsidence, producing an inadequate report;
  • Failing to warn of issues that require further investigation.
