Claiming Professional Negligence Against an Architect

A failure to plan correctly can incur substantial costs – in the worst cases, the structural integrity of the building might be affected or the work carried out without planning permission, leading to it being torn down.

Whether you are facing one of these worst-case scenarios, or have had to pay out to put right any incorrect designs, mistakes in construction work or administrative errors caused by the architect’s negligence, our professional negligence solicitors can help.

Fill in our online enquiry form on this page or call our professional negligence solicitors in Leeds, Sheffield and York on 0333 323 5292 and we will be happy to advise on whether you are likely to have a successful claim of professional negligence by an architect.

Claims against Architects Explained

Architects provide a professional service which requires considerable knowledge, skills and expertise. Because of this they are held to high standards – just like solicitors, financial advisors and doctors.

When an architect fails to uphold these high standards, the results can be catastrophic, leading to properties becoming unstable, new construction work being pulled down or plans altered, or even just extra admin costs due to having to apply for retrospective planning permission or building regulations approval.

Professional negligence claims against architects are a way to recover those costs as well as taking direct action against the architect to prevent them making the same mistakes again in future.
