Haslams has a reputation for precision and attention to detail and are regularly asked to advise and adjudicate on a variety of property disputes, as arbitrator, expert witness or a single joint expert.
Our witness and arbitration services are regularly requested by the RICS, the Law Society, the Courts and Tribunals, as well as by third party clients.
Our formal expert witness reports provide authoritative guidance on subjects such as valuation, planning, negligence, covenant release, boundaries and more.
An expert witness, professional witness or judicial expert is a witness, who by virtue of education, training, skill, or experience, is believed to have expertise and specialised knowledge in a particular subject beyond that of the average person, sufficient that others may officially and legally rely upon the witness’s specialised opinion about an evidence or fact issue within the scope of his expertise, referred to as the expert opinion, as an assistance to the fact-finder.
Expert witnesses may also deliver expert evidence about facts from the domain of their expertise.
A Haslams surveyor may be employed as an ‘expert witness’ to offer opinion on an evidence or fact issue in court, drawing from his own knowledge, training and experience.

Every organisation wants a fair deal when it comes to business rates.
If you are unhappy with your business rates, you can make an appeal in an attempt to change them. There are numerous grounds on which you can make a business rate appeal. However, you must continue to pay your rates even if you make an appeal.
If you are planning an appeal, it’s important to know that the rateable value for a property is based on the rental value of the property at a set date.
Haslams conducts business rates appraisals on properties large and small, and offers sound advice on managing and minimising your business rates tax burden.
We will negotiate with the Valuation Officer and submit formal appeals on your behalf, to ensure you are not paying over the odds. If an agreement cannot be reached we would appeal on your behalf at a Valuation Tribunal.
Please contact us for a business rates valuation, or to learn more about our services.
