Whether 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 always provide honest, informed and independent advice.

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.
