Who will need a building expert witness?

Persons, including builders, owners, owner's corporations, that have a problem or defect within a building or property and require support in litigation to substantiate that claim.

A building expert witness has a paramount duty to the Courts and not to the party engaging his/her services. For this reason the expert can provide litigation support to a builder, home or unit owner, sub-contractor or supplier. The expert endeavours are to provide an important opinion in an attempt to resolve issues for all parties concerned.

Solicitors require a building expert to provide factual information on the claim for defects or problems within a building. The building expert is to provide factual information on the extent and value of the claim while the solicitor is involved in the legal issues. The expert's report is referred to as litigation support.
