HOUSING WITNESS EXPERTISE CONSTRUCTION EXPERT WITNESS CONSTRUCTION DELAY ARBITRATION DISPUTE ARCHITECT BUILDING EXPERTISE LITIGATION
A construction expert witness is by definition a person empowered to carry out investigations and provide professional and neutral expertise in the field of construction and housing, especially when it comes to defects discovered by new owners and where the builder refuses to acknowledge his faults.
A construction expert witness is essential when it comes to assessing the damage that has occurred due to construction defects which are not due to negligence on the part of the new occupant of the property but which are due to a lack of professionalism either from the builder himself or from the architect.
Building or housing witness expertise is often the last resort for the buyer of the new property because very often either the builder is bankrupt or the buyer will have exhausted all his mortgages particularly in case of construction delays.
Construction expert witness has to be fast in his or her actions of elaborating a building due diligence given that a new property owner is under time pressure because while he hasn’t moved yet to his new house or flat has to pay both his existing rent and the new mortgage.
