Claims Against Estate Agents
Buying a house is usually the largest financial transaction many of us will ever make. With such a large amount of money involved, not to mention the time it takes to complete the sale and the inconvenience of moving, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect your estate agent to provide a competent and professional service to you so that the whole process is free from unnecessary complications, mistakes or delays.

At Canter Levin & Berg we know, as specialists in making claims against estate agents, that for a small number of people each year, the professional failure of their estate agents can have massive implications for them and for their plans to buy a home.
The job of an estate agent is to make the process of buying or selling a property as straightforward and easy as possible. A professional estate agent will have a thorough understanding of the factors that can affect local property prices, so that they can advise anyone selling their home about the best possible price their home could achieve given its condition and all of the external factors that might increase or decrease its value. At the same, for people buying a house, an estate agent should provide them with accurate information about the property and its condition. Professional negligence claims against estate agents become a possibility when these duties aren’t fulfilled, or when an estate agent makes a serious or deliberate error that leaves one or more parties out of pocket.
If you’ve been seriously let down by an estate agent, whether it was as someone selling a property or as someone buying or renting, then the professional negligence solicitors here at Canter Levin & Berg can help. We have helped many people to make successful claims against estate agents for compensation after they have suffered financial losses through the negligence of an estate agent. Our professional negligence team have over 30 years legal experience dealing with negligence claims against a variety of professionals, including estate agents, in cases where their clients have suffered substantial financial losses.
Suing Estate Agents
There are many ways in which the negligence of an estate agent could leave you with a financial loss. Mistakes during the process of buying or selling a property through an estate agent could result in an artificially low valuation being used for your property that might be well below its market value. There might also be unnecessary delays to the process of buying or selling caused by your estate agent that might prove very costly to you, especially if you are involved in a chain of buyers and are facing the prospect of having to move out of your current home by a certain date. Our solicitors have experience suing estate agents on behalf of their former clients in just these kinds of situations.
Successfully suing an estate agent requires you to prove that the actions of the estate agent went beyond merely providing a poor quality service and that they were in fact negligent. You must also show that this negligence has caused you to suffer a financial loss. When suing estate agents, it is always best to have expert legal advice and assistance during your case from a qualified professional negligence solicitor.
