Alternative dispute resolution for surveyor negligence

If making a surveyor negligence claim is possible, it is important to note that taking formal legal action may not be the most suitable approach in every instance. It is important that you understand all of the options available to you, especially as various methods of alternative dispute resolution can be more efficient and cost effective than litigation.

Our surveyor negligence solicitors are strong negotiators who will seek out the most appropriate method of resolving a claim. In every instance, we will put together the strongest possible case by liaising with professional’s insurers and obtaining expert reports to initiate proceedings.

Our real estate group also includes experienced mediators who will be willing to discuss the options for mediation and arbitration in detail.

Litigation proceedings for surveyor negligence

There will be some situations where pursuing litigation is the only way to ensure that you reach a positive outcome following an instance of surveyor negligence.

Our surveyor negligence solicitors are highly experienced in taking complex claims to trial in the High Court and Crown Court. Where litigation is required, our team can work alongside you to build a thorough case and provide robust representation during any hearings that take place.
