I currently practise as a director in a firm of Chartered Building Surveyors. I graduated from University of Salford in 1990 with a BSc Honours Degree following a four year course including one year working in industry. Following that, I passed the RICS professional exams in 1991 to become MRICS. I also have the RICS Diploma in Building Conservation.
Over the last 23 years, I have produced numerous Expert Witness Reports in compliance with the rules of CPR35. These have related to matters including right of light, general building defects, boundary disputes, uPVC windows and conservatories and DPC disputes. I have also given evidence in Court on various occasions for rights of light and building/boundary disputes. I have also appeared as an Expert at a Lands Tribunal Hearing in relation to a right of light matter concerning Compulsory Purchase and I have attended and advised in respect of formal mediation regarding a right of light dispute.
I am registered with the RICS Expert Witness Accreditation Service.
