Expert Witness and Forensic Valuations

Diminution in Value Assessments

We regularly receive instructions from solicitors to provide advice in both the residential and commercial spheres where a client feels he has received incorrect advice from a professional advisor. Generally, instructions are in relation to residential property where, for example, a purchaser relies upon a negligent survey report where a defect requiring repair has not been drawn to their attention. Occasionally, part of the plot is incorrectly conveyed or a right of way not drawn to the purchaser’s attention. In such scenarios we can provide independent advice and if an agreement cannot be reached, follow the case through to Court.

Retrospective Valuations

In these difficult economic times, lenders are increasingly seeking to recover losses sustained on property loans.

Using our extensive knowledge of both the residential and commercial markets, we are able to undertake retrospective valuations in order to assess whether a surveyors valuation was excessive, or if not, within an acceptable range.

Whether we are instructed by a lender directly or legal advisors, we provide independent and impartial advice.

Expert Determination and Arbitration

Many rent reviews in commercial property leases contain a provision that the new rent is to be determined by a third party in the event of a dispute. A number of our commercial Valuers are members of a select panel of arbitrators regularly receiving appointments from the President of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

Japanese Knotweed

We have expertise in representing defendants to minimise claims against them for spread of Japanese Knotweed.  We act for individuals, Institutions and Insurance Companies to advise against excessive and inappropriate claims made against them.  We have attended court on this matter in a high profile case, where our clients liabilities were reduced significantly over the level of the initial claims.
