If the actions of an Estate Agent has caused you to incur a financial loss or a lost opportunity, it is possible to pursue a claim for compensation against them.
The process of purchasing and selling a property can be one of life’s most stressful events. There are many steps which need to be completed in modern property transactions, which is why most entrust the legal and financial aspects of their purchase or sale to professionals, including estate agents.
An estate agent who offers professional services in the marketing of a property owes a duty of care to ensure its description accurately reflects what is actually being sold, otherwise they risk misrepresenting the particulars of a property.
In such cases, it might be argued by the Estate Agent the property description was faithful to what they were told by the seller.
If you believe that an Estate Agent has caused you loss or damage, you may have a case against them for professional negligence.
By instructing us, we will also consider a possible claim against the conveyancing Solicitor, if we believe they were also negligent in the process; this will be explained further during our initial discussions.
The first stage in bringing a claim for compensation arising from potential estate agent negligence is to have an initial telephone call with one of our specialist legal team to discuss the merits of your claim. This initial conversation is free of charge, and there’s no obligation to proceed.
We understand that many clients will be particularly concerned about incurring further financial losses through pursuing a claim that may prove to be unsuccessful. This is just one of the reasons that we offer our services for many claims on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis, also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), if we are confident you have a strong case.
There are many advantages to this. Not only does it clearly set out how payments will be managed and hence give you peace of mind no unexpected fees will be levied, it also protects you financially in the event there is no compensation awarded. In the event of there being no compensation, there is no payment to make. This also provides you with the confidence that we believe you have a strong case for compensation.
