Our Senior Chartered Building Surveyors provide Expert Witness reports and court representation for legal disputes in relation to property matters.

Expert Witness York

We are called upon to provide reliable, specialist knowledge in civil proceedings across a variety of Building Surveying disputes including:

  • Party Wall Disputes
  • Dilapidations
  • Defective Contruction Works
  • Negligence Claims
  • Leasehold Disputes

Following a thorough inspection of the evidence, our surveyors will prepare an impartial, fact- based report to consider against the claim. We can act as single or joint expert and provide concise Part 35 Civil Procedure Rules reports.

After receiving the report and reviewing our opinion, the parties in dispute often avoid expensive litigation costs by negotiating and agreeing an out of court settlement. Our surveyors are experienced at working with the parties in dispute to explain our opinion and to negotiate a fair settlement as appropriate.
