Property Professionals' Negligence and Liability: Surveyors, Valuers, Estate Agents and Auctioneers 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.
