Expert Witness

When a workmanship issue is the subject of a review request of a BRO, the SAT will order the lodgement of a witness statement from an expert witness in support of claims made in the submission of a Scott Schedule. You will therefore have to do the same to support your own views. First of all, these are professional opinions and not facts. Secondly, they in no way reflect on your own qualifications and awards. Some experts may have limited qualifications and experience and therefore will base the level of perfection required in the Building Code of Utopia. The testimony of an expert witness is a neutral assessment of the work. It is not supporting either party, and consequently both experts should be able to reach an agreement between themselves as to what is a fair quality.


At 8m our expert witness statements will be of notable prowess and as a result admissible. They will be a totally honest and neutral view.
