Expert Witness

Building Surveyor Expert Witness


An Expert Witness is a witness, who by virtue of education, training, skill, or experience, is believed to have expertise and specialised knowledge in a particular subject beyond that of the average person, sufficient that others may officially and legally rely upon the witness’s specialised opinion.

Expert Witness are appointed by the courts during construction disputes to give an expert opinion and may also deliver expert evidence about facts from the particular case.

Chartered Building Surveyors are therefore often employed as an ‘expert witness’ to offer opinion on issues in court, drawing from their own knowledge, training and experience.
