Dispute Resolution & Expert Witness

We frequently act as an intermediary between parties to a dispute in order to help them arrive at a mutual agreement.

This may take the course of arbitration, mediation or assisted negotiation. Such work is usually required for Landlord and Tenant issues but may involve other parties such as statutory authorities.

As a company we regularly receive instructions to act as expert witnesses in court and in quasi judicial hearings with regard to property matters.  Expert Witness reports are often required for property matters and disputes when the parties cannot agree on a settlement or outcome.

We only act within our expertise, experience and knowledge and provide an impartial report that can be used by both parties, known as a Single Joint Expert Report.

In these instances our duty is the Court and therefore we act completely independently and are not biased by either party.

Within the company we have expertise in the following:-

  • Land and Property disputes and valuations
  • Matrimonial disputes
  • Boundary Disputes
  • Utility company disputes
  • Overage and Restrictive Covenant disputes
  • Access and Ransom Disputes

In liaison with our Farmstock division – Harrison & Hetherington – we also provide expert witness reports for court involving livestock valuations.

  • From my first dealings with the valuer who came out to look at my property and telephone dealings with the staff in the office, I have had nothing but excellent service and I would like to thank them all for that. My biggest thanks must go to Gillian, who has helped me all the way from start to finish, she has gone beyond my expectations and helped me in every way possible, her enthusiasm and humour along with her professional service has made my experience of selling my property a very pleasant experience and for that I am very grateful.

  • Nothing but praise for the service offered by Andrew and Kathy at H&H King, Penrith. They really put themselves out, not only to ensure that we sold our house but also to find us a house that suited our requirements in the right area. We have no doubts that they are worthy of a 5* rating. N&T
