    Statute of limitation. Suing the agent.

    Is there any time constraint outside of which a landlord cannot sue a letting agent for professional negligence?

    We sacked the agent in Dec last year and intended to file a claim then but every time we go to send it we find more examples of their negligence and the claim just keeps building.

    Also the claim is now approaching the 20000 mark so do we still go through the small claims?


    If you are unsure about what to do seek professional Legal advice.


      £20,000 is well above the limit for small claims.
      The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.


        Limitation in prof neg is 6 years.

        A claim worth £20,000 would be a multi-track claim (the opposite end of the scale from a small claim) and would be heard in the High Court.
