If you are making a claim against a surveyor it is important to identify the key facts of the case at the outset. This will help you to establish liability against the surveyor and identify the losses you wish to include in the compensation claim.

To assist you with this we have prepared the short 'Surveyors Negligence Claim Sheet' below.

You can use the Surveyors Negligence Claim Sheet as an aide memoir and it will help you to gather together key facts of the case.

If you are thinking about making a claim against a surveyor and would like us to give you a free initial assessment of the legal merits of the case and its suitability for no win, no fee funding, then simply complete the claim sheet and return it to us by post or email.

Each surveyors negligence case is different, so it's important to bear in mind that a 'one size fits all' claim sheet like this can never be more than a general guide. You should therefore add any additional information you think might be relevant to your case. If you are not sure what to put in one of the boxes then simply leave it blank and move on to the next one.

We are able to assist with making a claim against a surveyor on a No Win, No Fee basis, where the financial loss suffered by you is more than the County Court 'small claims' limit which is currently £10,000. We can deal with claims that have a value of less than £10,000, but only on a privately funded basis.

If you encounter any problems when filling in the claim sheet then just give our free legal helpline a call on 0808 139 1595.
