In the event of dispute where property is involved, our surveyors can act as expert witnesses to provide written expert evidence which can be relied upon in civil proceedings before a wide range of tribunals (including courts) in the UK. The surveyor is bound to the requirements of the RICS Practice Statement, “Surveyors acting as expert witnesses”. The primary duty to the tribunal is to ensure that the expert can demonstrate:
- independence and unbiased opinion
- expertise, experience and knowledge
- impartiality to those instructing or responsible for the fee
- adherence to the duties of an expert witness by acting in an impartial and truthful manner
Our team of Chartered Surveyors and RICS Registered Valuers are experienced in providing expert reports on residential and commercial property, land and assets for company disputes, negligence claims, planning disputes, contract disputes and matrimonial disputes.
