In particular, we have carried out valuations for diminution arising from a variety of causes including:

We are very experienced in advising on professional negligence claims and dealing with the increasingly aggressive stance taken by insurance companies. Our advice is also sought by those issuing proceedings against builders and developers.
We have acted as Expert upon such diverse matters as a £500,000 boundary dispute at a care home near Exeter, an £875,000 claim against a developer in Hereford (Judgement given in the High Court for the claim in full), a £500,000 claim against an architect for negligence relating to a badly supervised large barn conversion together with advising on damage caused by a building contractor working on an adjoining property.
We can produce references by solicitors and members of the Bar upon request.
