An expert witness is anyone who has specialist knowledge of a particular subject upon which he or she may give an opinion. This opinion is usually made available to the court and as chartered surveyors, we are often called upon as RICS expert witnesses to help in disputes which may involve litigation. For this we provide Expert Witness Reports.
Where our expert witness services are called upon, we inspect and investigate as necessary to ascertain the facts and prepare a preliminary or final report as required. The format of our report will be governed by the courts Civil Procedure Rules (Part 35) and any Practice Directions. Additionally the Report will aim to give impartial relevant opinion as to the evidence, assist in establishing relevant facts, identify issues that may require decisions by the court and explore areas where agreement may be possible.
