Expert Determination

Expert Determination is a form of dispute resolution used when both parties agree that, to resolve the matter, there is a need for an independent evaluation of a disputed factual issue by an expert who specialises in the subject matter of the dispute. The expert's decision is - by prior agreement of the parties - legally binding on the parties. The advantages of Expert Determination are that the process is confidential, speedy, cost effective and final.

Role of the Expert Witness in Property Litigation

The expert's duty is to assist the court by identifying and analysing the evidence with the aim of establishing the truth.

Whilst professional advice and expert opinion is placed in the context of a thorough understanding of the law relating to the matters at issue, Jon Maynard Boundaries Ltd is not a law firm and does not offer either legal representation or advocacy services. We recommend that clients seek a solicitor who specialises in property litigation to advise them on legal matters and to recommend the services of a suitable barrister to represent them in court proceedings.

Expert Witness (Party Appointed)

The services of a Party Appointed Expert include:

  • reviewing the documentary evidence for a boundary
  • accurately surveying the features present on the site
  • preparing an Expert Report
  • meetings with the other side's expert to narrow the issues
  • giving oral evidence in court

so as to assist the court in understanding the surveying issues that relate to the case.

Our Expert Reports are based on a thorough investigation of the evidence, and on logical deduction leading to a convincing expert opinion. Our reputation is based both upon the clarity of our Expert Reports and on performance in the witness box.
