Real estate agents do not enjoy an unblemished reputation. However, this does not mean that each one is incompetent, misleading or negligent. In fact, most provide a good, honest service, but some do make mistakes, and whether a mistake has been made through incompetence or malpractice, if a buyer, seller or landlord suffers financial loss as a result, a suitably qualified professional negligence solicitor may be able to help the client claim compensation.

Where appropriate a complaint about the activities of an estate agent may be registered with one of the following organisations, the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA), the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA), the National Approved Letting Scheme (NALS), the UK Association of Letting Agents (UKALA) or the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
Proving professional negligence against an estate agent can be a complex process and is likely to require the advice of a solicitor with specialist knowledge and experience of seeking claims.
For a case to succeed, the claimant must establish that the estate agent owed him or her a duty of care and that there was a breach of that duty which resulted in financial loss.
Misleading information, misrepresentation and over- or under- valuations are some of the most common reasons clients prove with negligence claims against estate agents.
