Surveyors acting as expert witnesses is written for those surveyors who provide expert evidence to be relied upon in civil proceedings before a wide range of tribunals (including courts) in the United Kingdom.

The RICS practice statement sets out the duties of a surveyor and the RICS guidance note provides further information on good practice. It takes the surveyor through every stage of an expert witness role including:-

  • principal duties;
  • acceptance of instructions;
  • written evidence/reports, and oral evidence;
  • advocacy and expert witness roles;
  • agreeing facts and resolving differences;
  • fees; and
  • the scope of immunity attaching to the expert witness role.
This comprehensive guide is essential for any surveyor involved in expert witness work. It:-
  • explains the need for clear instructions and terms of engagement;
  • gives guidance on what to do in situations of conflict of interest;
  • outlines the written report format ;
  • clarifies the differences between the roles of expert and advocate; and
  • helps remove pressure upon experts to support their clients' cases irrespective of their honest professional opinion.
