Architect Negligence Solicitors in London 

When you retain an architect, you place your trust and faith in the services that he or she is retained to provide. If the architectl fails to provide competent advice and you suffer a financial loss, you may be able to bring a professional negligence claim against the architect.

Our team of experienced solicitors are specialists in the area of architect negligence claims, as well as against many other professionals. We have considerable expertise in dealing with claims against architects, accountants, surveyors, solicitors, barristers and financial advisers.

By closely working with our commercial and property departments, we have developed a knowledge and understanding of the relevant issues involved in certain transactions which in turn enables us to understand clearly the issues relevant to a claim in professional negligence. We understand the duties of the professional in relation to these transactions and can therefore readily identify whether he or she has failed in those duties.

Examples of Architect Negligence  

Most instances of negligence by architects involve a residential or commercial property transaction.

Examples of architect negligence could include:

  • Insufficient supervision
  • Failure to manage a project properly
  • Failure to advise appropriately with regard to drawings and plans
  • Failure to obtain sufficient planning permissions or to recognise regulations

Architects are often instructed to project manage or oversee a team of individuals working on a building or construction project. If the architect fails in his or her duty to manage properly, he or she may be accountable for mistakes. If these result in a financial loss, the property owner may have a claim against the architect in professional negligence.

If some jobs on a project are contracted out to third parties, other companies or groups, and these are not monitored properly, the architect may be responsible for mistakes of those third parties.

Limitation in Architect Negligence Claims 

There are time limits to bring a professional negligence claim. You have 6 years from the act of negligence or 3 years from the date of knowledge to start court proceedings for a claim for professional negligence. The test for ascertaining the date of knowledge is when a reasonable person ought to have realised that there was a risk that negligence had occurred. There is a long stop date of 15 years from the act of negligence after which a claim may not be brought regardless of the date of knowledge. If you do not bring your claim in time, then your claim will usually be lost forever.
