Surveyors & Property Professionals

What we do

We have significant specialist expertise in defending professional indemnity claims against surveyors, estate agents, property & facilities management agents, letting agents, LPA receivers, investment agents and specialist property consultants.

We are proud to act for many of the UK’s top 10 national and international property consultants, the UK’s largest surveying, estate agency and property services group, many of the largest regional surveying, valuation, estate agency and lettings companies, and the majority of the professional indemnity insurers who underwrite these risks.

Our dedicated teams have broad experience. This ranges from handling the very high value, more complicated, cases through to large numbers of more standard claims and complaints, where a proactive, decisive and cost-effective strategy is essential.  Our specialists also frequently advise on regulatory and health & safety issues when they arise.

What we are known for

Our national team is proud to be recognised as a market leading brand in this sector.

We believe that our knowledge of both the property sector and those professionals who operate within it, coupled with the level of expertise the group has accumulated across the diverse range of claims that this sector produces, is unrivalled in the marketplace. We also consider that our innovative fee structures and the deployment of the right specialised resource to each and every case, further enhances the quality and value of the service we provide to you.

That is what we think makes us different. Committed specialists focused on not only the pursuit of successful outcomes but also the reinforcement of your brand and reputation with your customers. Our aim is simple; to be the very best at what we do.
