Expert Witness – West London Disrepair

West London Disrepair

Project Overview

Expert Witness

Client: Confidential Joint Instruction

Location: West London

Project Break Down

Challenge: A dispute had arisen between the Landlord and tenant of the flat relating to the condition of the premises, and required an impartial ‘Joint Expert’ to assess the items of disrepair claimed and provide a report commenting on the items specifically highlighted. It was essential that the appointed expert had depth of experience in building defects and their root causes, and could report accurately on the severity of any issues requiring address.

Solution: One of our experienced RICS Chartered Building Surveyors was appointed to act for both parties as an impartial third party expert and following assessment of the legal paperwork, carried out an inspection of the premises. Utilising specialist equipment to assess dampness and water damage, we were able to undertake a through but unobtrusive inspection of the premises and provide a CPR compliant report reflecting responses to each point and issue raised for use by the court. Our experience in handling sensitive matters and situations enabled us to successfully complete the inspection and provide a fully impartial assessment of claim items assisting in resolving matters.
