Why Legal Help is Important
It is important to appreciate that every property has a range of values that may be applicable as a reasonable selling price. If you were to ask a number of estate agents to establish a value for a property each of them may well come up with a different price. It is only where a property is obviously substantially over or undervalued that Professional Negligence occurs.
The process can be complex, potentially stressful and can be considered to be
incredibly important. It can have an impact on you and your business, both in the short and long term – it is therefore imperative that you have the best legal experts at your side, not only to ensure everything progresses as it should, but also to make sure both you and your business benefits from the best possible terms of a claim.
Almost anyone can set up as an estate agent with no formal training however most estate agents are now either professionally qualified or employ professionally qualified staff. It should be remembered that Professional negligence claims against an estate agent are often covered by indemnity insurance taken out by the estate agent.
Other questions to be considered will include whether the estate agent followed the client’s instructions and took reasonable care in carrying out those instructions. Before reaching any ruling a court will also need to look at whether the estate agent demonstrated basic competence and skill, offered advice on all appropriate matters, and whether he or she sought to protect the client’s interests.
