Any professional undertaking residential property surveys will no doubt be aware of the case of Hart v Large, in which the Court of Appeal found that the defendant surveyor was liable to the claimants for all losses they suffered after purchasing a property. In this talk, we will look at the reasons for the Court of Appeal’s decision, the lessons that can be learned from it, and what steps surveyors can take to protect their position. In particular, we will consider:

  • The measure of loss for claims relating to a negligent survey
  • The difference between ‘advice’ and ‘information’
  • The relevant standard and role of expert evidence
  • The use of disclaimers and limitation clauses
  • The importance of your business structure
  • The importance of run-off insurance
  • Practical issues relating to the RICS Home Survey Standard
