Expert Witness Investigations

A service tailored to your needs


“The role of the Expert Witness is to assist the court on specialist or technical matters within their expertise.” Dr Chris Pamplin Editor UK Register of Expert Witnesses

The Expert Witness provides objective, unbiased opinions by means of report and can also appear in Court to give evidence verbally.

If you are involved in a building dispute, either as the property owner or perhaps as the contractor, you may decide or be advised to commission an inspection and report to help with negotiations. In these circumstances, it is most cost-effective to appoint a suitably experienced Chartered Building Surveyor to act as Expert Witness in providing the report. An Expert Witness will be fully conversant with the court rules and so the Report will be of appropriate format and content for later use in court should that prove necessary.

Our approach ....

At the BCB we pride ourselves on the simple approach of producing accurate, technically sound Expert Witness reports which cannot be successfully challenged. We prepare our reports bearing in mind that a robust Report results in successful negotiation - this delivers quicker resolution for our client and means further costly litigation can often be avoided.
