Expert witness & dispute resolution

Our surveyors act as Expert Witnesses for litigation, arbitration, mediation and general dispute cases relating to property and land.

Experts in dispute resolution

Expert witness service

We can act for either side of the dispute party or as a ‘Joint Sole’ witness, and will work with you to understand your case before advising the most appropriate path of dispute resolution.

Well-honed negotiation skills and trusted expertise can often avoid the need for expensive arbitration or litigation proceedings and our involvement can help to find common ground that both parties can agree on to reach a resolution.

When disputes do escalate, our impartial knowledge and expertise, combined with a thorough understanding of the legal proceedings we operate in, deliver a fact based report with conclusions that aid the legal process of reaching a satisfactory outcome in dispute resolution.

For the best possible outcome, when it becomes apparent that there is a matter relating to property which is, or is likely to become a dispute it is important to call a surveyor to discuss the options available to you as soon as possible
