The role of the surveyors in dilapidations court proceedings

Simon Hartley, Partner and Head of Property Litigation, will be speaking at a webinar hosted by the Dilapidations Association on 3 June 2021. He will be speaking alongside Terry Davies, Chairman of TN Davies and Keith Firn, Datum Building Consultancy Ltd about the role of surveyors in dilapidations court proceedings.

An increasing number of dilapidations disputes now have proceedings issued even though most are settled without proceeding to trial. This seminar deals specifically with the procedures to be followed by Expert Witnesses acting in such disputes after proceedings have been issued and prior to trial.

In this online seminar we will explore the following:

  • The over-riding duty to the court
  • Complying with Directions
  • The objectives of the joint statement
  • The meeting or virtual meeting
  • How to set out a joint statement
  • The Expert’s reports

This will be followed by a question and answer session.
Delegates are invited to submit questions in advance. Please email these by COB Tuesday 1 June

Please email Alison to book your place. Numbers are limited to 100. The joining link will be sent the day prior to the event.

The event is free for members of the Dilapidations Association. Non-members will be charged £30. Visit the website to find out more.
