Negligent Conveyancing Claims

When buying or selling a property (whether commercial or residential) or entering a lease you would usually use a lawyer to ensure the process runs as smoothly as possible. It is extremely important that the conveyancing process is dealt with properly and you are fully advised on the transaction, as the cost of rectifying mistakes later down the line can be significant. In some situations, the value of the property may be adversely affected.

Unfortunately mistakes do occur, which in some situations can   be as a result of the negligence of your lawyer. Negligent conveyancing can lead to financial and other practical difficulties and unnecessary stress.

Here at Mitchell Wilde we pride ourselves on being able to guide you through this stressful situation with professionalism and understanding. We use our thorough knowledge of the legal system to reduce the impact of the negligence and assist you in claiming compensation from your lawyer.

Conveyancing negligence can come in many forms. Some examples of conveyancing negligence may include:

  • Errors in identifying the boundary of the land
  • Errors in identifying the identity of the land
  • Failing to ensure that your instructions are reflected in a contract or other legal document.
  • Failing to properly report to you on the nature of property and draw attention to any issues, for example failing to advise on restrictions or conditions that the property is subject to, such as a restriction on use
  • Failure to keep you updated and to take your instructions
  • Failure to carry out property searches and/or enquiries
  • Conveyancing fraud
  • Acting without authority including from a joint owner
  • Failure to give correct, or any, advice about the meaning and effect of a contract or other legal document
  • Acting whilst the lawyer has a conflict of interest

it is important that once a mistake comes to light that you take action promptly. When such a mistake does occur we are on hand to give you timely and practical advice.

If you believe that you have experienced conveyancing fraud or negligence during the conveyancing process, we can help you claim compensation.
