Property Professionals' Negligence and Liability (Hardback)

Awaiting publication


Provides a comprehensive guide for those advising upon, and dealing with, the civil liability and professional discipline of valuers/surveyors, estate agents and auctioneers.

Written by a leading practitioner in the field, it deals with a variety of topics, from general principles to specific situations, providing practical guidance to the regulatory and procedural aspects.

The work commences with an overview of the law of professional liability insofar as that is pertinent to the professions in question and goes on to focus upon particular issues in relation to litigation which require special attention in claims of this kind. It considers the individual professions in question, providing a detailed account of the legal principles and the case-law applicable to their civil and (in the case of estate agents) their criminal liability.

Simon Wilton is head of the Professional Negligence Group at Hailsham Chambers, a set which specialises in professional liability claims, including claims against all kinds of property professionals. Simon was called to the Bar in 1993 and is a senior junior barrister. He is on the Executive Committee of the Professional Negligence Bar Association. Simon was short-listed by Chambers & Partners as Professional Negligence Junior of the Year in 2014 and 2016. He hopes to take silk in the next 3 years. He frequently acts for claimants and defendants in many kinds of professional liability disputes, and has a particular interest in claims against property professionals including valuers and surveyors, estate agents and auctioneers. He has over the years been involved in large numbers of claims alleging negligence against valuers and surveyors, and has dealt with numerous disputes of all kinds in relation to estate agents. Claims against auctioneers are less common but Simon is also well acquainted with the case-law in that area too. He has also defended estate agents, surveyors and valuers in disciplinary proceedings before their professional bodies.
