Reports can be provided either as an Expert Witness (appointed by one party in the dispute) or as a Single Joint Expert (appointed jointly by the parties).

In all cases, expert reports must be wholly objective and unbiased and must comply with the RICS Practice Statement applicable to Surveyors acting as Expert Witnesses.

In cases where disputes are referred to County Courts (or a higher court) the reports must also comply with the Civil Procedure Rules.

A high level of expertise and experience is required to act as an Expert Witness.

They are also bound by a code of professional conduct and are regulated by the RICS to ensure the highest standards are maintained. The RICS also operates a scheme for the protection of clients' money.
