How could a contract be breached?

When you engage a professional to perform a service, such as instructing an architect to design a building, they enter into an agreement with you where they agree to perform a task, to a particular standard, in an agreed time, and for a fee. If the professional fails to perform the agreed task to the standard which was expected, more often than not this will place them in breach of the contract which exists.

Examples of claims for breach of a professional services contract include


You may have received incorrect tax advice, been poorly advised in respect of accounting procedures or had assets valued incorrectly.


An architect may have provided you with a defective or unworkable set of plans or designs, they may have failed to advise you correctly on planning issues or may have failed to effectively manage a project on your behalf, leading to financial loss.

Independent Financial Advisors

You may have received poor advice from an IFA in respect of an investment, pension, mortgage or tax issue which has resulted in you losing money or depleted your retirement fund.


A solicitor may have failed to advise you about a major issue when you have purchased a property, or your solicitor may have missed the date by when you should have issued a claim.


Your surveyor may have missed a serious structural defect in a property you have brought or overvalued a property you have brought on which you now have a loan.
