Property Damage

Compass Chambers has extensive expertise and experience of property damage work.

Our advocates regularly provide advice and representation in a wide range of property damage cases.

Our expertise spans the following areas:

  • Breach of contract
  • Negligence
  • Nuisance
  • Contaminated land, fire and flood
  • Neighbour disputes
  • Landlord and tenant
  • Commercial contracts including construction disputes
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution including mediation, arbitration and adjudication

Disputes may centre around structural defects, building or engineering works and domestic or commercial activities which give rise to damage.

Our highly experienced counsel can provide advice on remedies and will focus on pragmatic, business orientated solutions for clients.  This includes the provision of advice in relation to and consideration of subsidiary issues such as prescription/limitation, insurance, measure of damages and on ways of avoiding litigation altogether.  This can have a significant bearing upon costs to clients. 

As in every area of practice, flexible and transparent fee structures can be agreed and tailored to suit any particular property damage case. Our advocates are also happy to accept instructions on the basis of Direct Access via the applicable Faculty of Advocates’ rules.
