Expert Witness Reporting

Specific Defects Reports

We offer our clients Expert Reports, pursuant to Part 35 of the Civil Procedural Rules, so that this evidence may be utilised at court if this becomes necessary.

We have many years’ experience providing in depth and comprehensive surveys for a range of different types of property across Berkshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, wiltshire, Sussex, Surrey, London and the surrounding areas.  Because of our extensive experience we are able to understand a variety of building defects and make assessments of the whole structure or isolated elements.

Acting as expert witnesses our overriding duty is to the court. It is our duty to help the court on matters which are in our expertise. This duty overrides our duty to our clients. We deal with all expert matters impartially providing a credible expert opnion only in matters within our expertise.

Unfortunately when we become involved as an expert witness a dispute is usually already underway. Our involvement can crystallise the matter in contention and sometimes provide clarity to avoid litigation. Our surveyors will provide provide essential professional advice as to the existence of a defect as well as remedial advice as required.
