Buying or selling a home is one of the largest transactions we can take part in. Which is why it’s important that everyone behaves professionally.
The problem can be that just about anyone can open an estate agency and start trading. So it’s important to be able to hold them to account if they’ve been negligent or misleading.
There are a number of ways in which estate agents can be negligent with the most obvious reason relating to over valuing or undervaluing the property that they are offering for sale although there is also the real possibility of legal action for negligent misstatement which may have induced a third party to enter into a contract to buy.
Some of the most common reasons for a claim against an estate agent are:
- Offering a property for sale at an undervalued price.
- Failure to advise on changing market conditions where a property has become overvalued or undervalued with the passage of time.
- A seller being held responsible for losses as a result of negligent mis-statement by an estate agent which induced the buyer to purchase the property
- Failure to advise on potential development opportunity of your property.
