- Incorrect property valuations from a surveyor or a failure to spot defects
- Missing of certain time limits by a solicitor, which leaves a client liable for fees
- Failure to perform property searches by a conveyancer or solicitor, which leads to a client overpaying, or purchasing a property without the facts they would reasonably expect
