What is a professional negligence claim against an architect?

Architects, being so heavily involved in the initial stages of any building project and needing to collaborate closely with their clients to see work done through to their completion, are instrumental in determining the success of a project.

An architect being negligent can cause substantial financial losses for clients and this can occur due to poor design, use of unsuitable materials, failure to adhere to relevant regulations, and providing poor advice.

We recognise that negligence by an architect can cause more than mere financial harm, as clients can often be left out of their homes which they have spent years designing and putting their heart and soul into.


Why choose us?

We can help you seek financial compensation for the losses arising from negligence on the part of your architect, with our expert solicitors helping you understand whether the errors made were in fact negligent and then consider the best method of pursuing your claim.

We aim to resolve disputes quickly and cost-effectively to allow our clients to focus on more productive matters, seeking to avoid expensive court proceedings and achieve necessary recompense at the earliest stage.

We recognise that a large proportion of our clients are busy with heavy work commitments and are therefore agreeable to arranging consultations out of normal business hours.

Will my claim be successful?

In order to bring a successful negligence claim against an architect, a claimant i.e. the person bringing the claim, must demonstrate to the court that the professional in question owed them a duty of care which is normally established by them being a client in the first place, secondly that professional breached his duty of care, thirdly that the professional by either doing something or failing to do something (the latter often referred to as an omission), caused the claimant a loss. The loss is the fourth element that the claimant must prove.

When making a claim against an architect, you must usually obtain a report from another architect confirming that they think that the work falls below the standard expected of a fellow professional.

We can help you to obtain this report, if necessary.
