Property Negligence

Property Negligence

Moving house can be one of the most stressful times in your life. That is why you have a conveyancing solicitor, an expert, to guide you through the legal process making sure you are aware of any pitfalls. Unfortunately, conveyancing solicitors sometimes get it wrong and that could leave you losing out financially. If you feel that you were not advised properly, we can look into your conveyancing for you and investigate whether your conveyancing solicitor has been negligent.

Examples of property negligence

  • Your solicitor failed to advise you properly on rent review terms
  • Your solicitor did not advise you about the existence of a right of way on or next to your property
  • Your solicitor failed to advise you properly about the terms of a Lease
  • Your solicitor failed to notice an error on the property Deeds
  • Your solicitor did not follow your express instructions

Case study

Paul instructed conveyancing solicitors to deal with the purchase of his new home which was a leasehold property. His solicitors advised him that when the rent was reviewed, it would double from £75 to £150. However, the lease actually said that the rent would increase to double the previous rent or increase to 0.3% of the current value of the property, whichever was the greatest. Therefore when the rent was to be reviewed, it would actually increase to £675 rather than £150. When Paul came to sell his property, a number of buyers pulled out because of this clause in the lease. Paul instructed us to pursue a claim against his former solicitors for not advising him properly. We pursued a claim for the difference between what Paul paid for the property and what the property was actually worth in light of the rent review clause and successfully recovered over £10,000 for Paul.
