Our Service

A commercial property transaction whether by sale or purchase, lease or raising finance is likely to involve two professionals: a solicitor and a surveyor. Both will play an important role in the transaction and both will have a legal obligation in contract and will also have a duty of care to you.

It is also possible that either professional (although in practice this is likely to be much more relevant for the surveyor) will owe duties to someone other than you as their client. For example a surveyor instructed to prepare a valuation for a mortgage lender could also owe a duty to the purchaser. This is more likely in the purchase of residential property but it could apply in relation to a commercial property transaction in certain circumstances.

A solicitor and surveyor owe to their client a duty to act with the reasonable skill and care of a competent solicitor or surveyor dealing in commercial property matters.

A commercial lease or commercial purchase is an important transaction for any business and if it goes wrong in some way taking proceedings for professional negligence may be the only way to recover losses suffered.
