Vickery Holman have an unrivalled professional reputation for property advice in the South West. This is reflected in the service we provide on 3rd Party disputes. Nick Holman is a member of the RICS Panels of Arbitrators and Independent Experts and regularly receives appointments from the President of the RICS. Appointments direct by the parties to disputes are also taken. A reference to arbitrator or independent expert often leads to quicker and cheaper dispute resolution on rent reviews, lease renewals and other property valuation disputes.
Through our Landlord & Tenant activities our Chartered Surveyors frequently present cases to arbitrators and independent experts in their capacity of expert witness for one of the parties. When acting as expert witness the Chartered Surveyor acts in accordance with the RICS Practice Statement: Surveyors Acting as Expert Witnesses and is familiar with court protocols.
In disputes heading for court we take the role of a joint appointed expert to assist the parties in resolution of the dispute on valuation issues, leaving the solicitors clear to concentrate on the legal arguments.
