Surveyors acting as expert witnesses is written for those surveyors who provide expert evidence to be relied upon in civil proceedings before a wide range of tribunals (including courts) in the United Kingdom. The RICS practice statement sets out the duties of a surveyor and the RICS guidance note provides further information on good practice. It takes the surveyor through every stage of an expert witness role including:

- principal duties;
- acceptance of instructions;
- written evidence/reports, and oral evidence;
- advocacy and expert witness roles;
- agreeing facts and resolving differences;
- fees; and
- the scope of immunity attaching to the expert witness role.

This comprehensive guide is essential for any surveyor involved in expert witness work. It:

- explains the need for clear instructions and terms of engagement;
- gives guidance on what to do in situations of conflict of interest;
- outlines the written report format ;
- clarifies the differences between the roles of expert and advocate; and
- helps remove pressure upon experts to support their clients' cases irrespective of their honest professional opinion.
