A professional expert should sell you good advice, anything less can be negligent
The world is a complicated place and we all find ourselves in situations where we need advice from an expert or professional advisor from time to time. However, when that advice is wrong, it can have serious consequences.
Professional negligence in property transactions
One common area of professional negligence arises in property transactions. If, for example, when buying a house the surveyor’s report suggests that the property is structurally sound when it is not, this can mean that you pay more for the property than it is worth.
Negligence by accountants
Another common example occurs in accountancy. If when you are seeking tax advice from your accountant and that advice is wrong, you may suffer a loss by paying too much tax.
Negligence in a range of professions
Cunningtons act for individuals and companies in bringing and defending claims against surveyors, accountants, solicitors and other professionals.
