Professional Negligence – Architects

At Ventura Law, we have experience of dealing successfully with professional negligence claims against architects in relation to both individual and commercial projects.

To bring a successful claim in professional negligence against an architect, you will need to show that your architect failed to meet their professional standards and /or breached their contract or agreement with you.

A claim may be brought by the architect’s client, but in certain circumstances third parties may also be able to bring an action against the professional.

For immediate assistance, please call us now on 020 3795 6043 or complete a Free Online Enquiry and we will be delighted to help you.

Some examples of architect’s negligence include:

  • Preparing unsuitable design and plans for a new property/commercial installation;
  • Failing to obtain appropriate and/or correct planning permission;
  • Negligent design advice;
  • Draft/prepare tender documentation and approve/appoint a contractor;
  • Failing to properly supervise and/or administer works; and
  • Certify works which have been carried out poorly by contractors

As with all claims of that nature, a financial loss as a result of the architect’s negligence and/or breach of contract will need to be shown. Without a financial loss, there is no claim. This could be manifested in many ways, for example:

  • having to instruct a new architect
  • having to hire a new building team to redo certain, or even all, elements of the project
  • if you are unable to sell the property because of the architect’s negligence.

Early advice is vital in assessing the viability and merits of such a claim.

At Ventura Law we have the expertise and experience of dealing with cases of high value and complexity.
