RICS Expert Witness

As a firm of Chartered Building Surveyors, Chartered Project Managers and RICS Registered Valuers Record Associates regularly provide RICS Expert Witness reports on a range of property and construction matters including:

  • Building & construction contract disputes
  • Professional negligence disputes
  • Building defects disputes
  • Defective workmanship disputes
  • Boundary and right of way disputes
  • Party wall disputes
  • Dilapidations disputes
  • Service charge disputes
  • Housing disrepair disputes

Led by our Julian Record, a Chartered Building Surveyor and Chartered Project Manager with over 20 years experience within the property and construction industry, we are proud of our strong reputation for our fair, thorough and reliable approach to determining our opinion of liability in accordance with the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) and RICS Practice Statement, “Surveyors acting as expert witnesses“.

Julian has completed the RICS accredited Legal Experience Training Advanced Professional Award in Expert Witness Evidence and has prepared several CPR compliant RICS Expert Witness reports either for one party to the dispute or, as is becoming increasingly common (due to the costs involved with legal proceedings), for both parties as a Single Joint Expert.

Instructing solicitors include Terry Jones, Linder Myers, PCB, Clarkes, Blake Morgan, Bourne Jaffa, Trowers & Hamlins, Irwin Mitchell, CMS Cameron McKenna, DAS, DLG and DWF.

Where a dispute arises, it is best to be resolved quickly and at a cost which is proportionate to the dispute itself and the sums involved.

Record Associates can provide a service where we will assess the relevant details and if required, prepare a preliminary report either directly with our client or their instructing solicitor.  Our preliminary report will enable our client to decide the best strategy and, if necessary, avoid embarking on expensive and lengthy court action.

If you would like to discuss your situation on a confidential basis please contact our Julian Record and he would be delighted to assist.
