Surveyor failed to advise about planning permission

We were instructed by our client to advise on a professional negligence claim against a Surveyor Company. The client had instructed the surveyors in relation to a loft conversion with a rear dormer but were incorrectly advised.

Home » Why BMcF? » Case Studies » Surveyor failed to advise about planning permission
Filter Case Studies

The Defendant negligently failed to advise the Claimants that planning permission would be required for the dormer and in fact advised that it was not. The conversion took place without planning permission. After works were complete the Council issued a Stop Notice and advised the Claimants that they in fact required planning permission.  The existing structure was required to be taken down and then rebuilt in accordance with the planning permission which was eventually received which allowed for 2 small dormers as opposed to one large dormer.

The Defendant admitted liability at an early stage and paid £68k by way of damages.
