    Action against surveyors handling s20 works

    Hi, we appointed surveyors to handle the s20 process for the Major Works that were needed to an estate we manage (purchased through RFR). We appointed them in December 2017. After lots of errors, oversights and unnecessary additions on their part we finally managed to get the scope of works agreed in June 2018. It is now nearly a year and half later and we are still waiting on the Notice of Estimates. My concern is that it has taken so long that the firms that tendered may have lost interest and walked away. Do we have any comebacks? I'm wondering who would pay if we have to start the whole process again and if it is worth complaining to RICS.

    Any complaints should be referred initially to the surveyors. If you are unable to agree a course of action, they should have a dispute resolution service to which you can refer the complaint. Any tenders which were submitted in June 2018 are unlikely to apply today.

    Many management companies seem to be bypassing s20 following the ruling in the Daejan v Benson case.
