Expert Witness Services

Stiles Harold Williams’ valuers are regularly called upon to provide Expert Witness Reports and appear in court to provide expert opinion on a range of property matters.


The Civil Procedure Rules Part 35, defines an Expert Witness as a person who has been instructed to give or prepare Expert Evidence for the purpose of proceedings.

The role of an Expert may be as an Advisory Expert, Shadow Expert, Lead Expert, Part 35 Expert, Single Joint Expert or as an assessor who can sit with a Judge to assist the Court.

Ultimately it is the duty of the Expert Witness to assist the Court on matters within their expertise.


Each of our Partners & Directors are potential Expert Witnesses in their specialist fields. SHW are able to share our huge knowledge and experience of property related issues with you to provide initial advice in trying to resolve your particular problem. If needs be, we are then able to provide a report to comply with the Civil Procedure Rules Part 35.


In the event of an insurance or civil claim, litigation or for matrimonial and other dispute resolution purposes, the role of an independent Expert Witness can be crucial in assisting the parties to understand the property related issues and can make the difference between success or failure of a claim.

SHW provides a wide range of property related services including Agency, Professional and Building Consultancy. We have a broad database of knowledge and a network of offices extending from London to the south coast.


Whatever the issues of your particular case, in the first instance contact Howard Cox to discuss what SHW can do to help you.

Howard will be able to advise you who within SHW would be most suitably qualified to assist you or if it is an issue outside of our wide area of Expertise.
