The truth is we know that disputes can be expensive and unsettling distractions, which is why we work closely and in collaboration with legal teams to find an equitable solution.
We know that as Expert Witnesses, our duty of care is to the Court and not to clients who appoint us: our focus is entirely on property related issues and disputes.
We have no typical cases, but whether we are retained by claimants or defendants, providing preliminary pre-action advice or current/retrospective advice; acting in rent review arbitration cases (as an independent expert) or for Landlord & Tenant 1954 Act renewal cases referred to court; there is one thing you can be assured of – we will provide honest, informed and independent advice whether we are dealing with commercial or residential properties.
How We Can Help
Our Expert Witness specialists help clarify and resolve property related issues. The team’s experience and expertise is often the difference between success or failure of a claim.
The team has a proven track record of working closely with legal teams – whether they are providing initial advice/counsel, helping develop/refine a resolution strategy, appearing in court, providing mediation services, or providing a report which complies with CPR Part 35.
