Steven Docker Associates (SDA) specialise as Accommodation Experts arising from Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Litigation. Our practice has long established and very successful departments dealing with:-
SDA is one of the country’s leading specialist accommodation needs practices.
Our experience in designing homes for severely disabled individuals throughout the UK provides us with the "hands-on" practical experience necessary to provide the Court with accurate and impartial reports. Solicitors and barristers instructing or recommending our firm consider our reports to be unparalleled in providing reliable and comprehensive expert evidence.
All members of our Expert Witness Department hold the Certificate of Expert Witness and RICS Accreditation and are also RICS Registered Valuers.
Buying the wrong property for a disabled individual can be costly and, even when adapted, the dwelling may not be entirely suitable. Drawing on our extensive experience, we are able to identify the most suitable property for adaption to suit our client’s individual needs. SDA carry out property searches, viewings, feasibility assessments, valuations of the property, preparation of illustrative floor layout plans, 3D drawings price negotiations and overall management of the buying or renting process.
We can assist with all aspects of the building/adaptation process, from inception to completion. Our design team prepare bespoke design solutions specifically to suit the needs of each individual client. We receive instructions from solicitors, deputy’s and case managers, as well as directly from private clients.
Our practice focuses on a person's abilities rather than the negative aspects of their often severe and complex disabilities. Our expertise in adapting existing properties and the construction of new purpose designed dwellings, culminates in providing safe and accessible inclusive environments which encourage the maximum possible degree of independence and the associated benefits of an enhanced quality of life.
