Disputes with Architects

When you use a chartered architect you are protected, as the skills have to be exercised according to the standards established by a professional body; both in professional conduct and in the procedures by which your appointment is executed.

If the architect you use fails to provide competent advice, does not perform his or her responsibilities to the required standard, or you suffer a financial loss as a direct result of their actions, you may be able to seek compensation.

Examples of professional negligence involving architects include:

  • Failure to obtain planning permission
  • Failure to manage a project properly
  • Poor designs and plans
  • Use of unsuitable materials
  • Health and safety breaches

Mr Wheeler of Tyneside

"After completing one of their forms online I was quickly called back by their own solicitor. He was very helpful and knowledgeable and gave me instant advice about what I should do next. I am very pleased with the service from Mayiclaim so far. I would certainly recommend them."

Mr Harper of Huntingdon.

"Mayiclaim have been helpful, effective, efficient and highly professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mayiclaim should you ever need expert help or advice."


"After coming to a standpoint in my negotiations, I approached Carl at Mayiclaim. His advice and guidance, and letter helped my case tremendously and I ended up with an extremely positive result, which I knew I wouldn't have reached without Mayiclaim's help."
