An expert witness must, above all else, have expertise in their subject area and Chartered Surveyors acting as expert witnesses must do so in accordance with the current RICS practice statement and guidance note, a copy of which is available on request. The primary duty of an expert witness is to the Court or Tribunal, not to the Client or person instructing him. Any expert evidence provided must be independent, unbiased and impartial, should state the main facts and assumptions on which it is based and should not omit material facts that might be relevant to the conclusions.
Daniels & Associates can demonstrate high standards of competence in all fields of building surveying and can accept instructions to act as an expert witness in this field based on their knowledge and experience gained over many years in these various areas of work. Carefully written and reasoned reports are prepared to assist Clients, Solicitors or the Court to resolve disputes, quantify costs and make recommendations.
