What is an expert’s report on properties and/or arbitrations?

A specialised appraisal report that can be used for legal proceedings, lawsuits and/or complaints.

This type of report gives a financial analysis and a reasoned and unbiased opinion of the value of a property whose value is affected by a certain event or act (urban planning, contentious, etc.) to assess the causes and quantify the relevant effects and compensation.

In either case (expert’s report or arbitration), it aims to set forth, in a sufficiently clear and concise document, the appraisal or unbiased and reasoned opinion of the expert on the disputed event.

Frequently Asked Questions

View questions

An expert is a qualified engineer or architect with the necessary knowledge and experience within a specific area, who is recognised as a trustworthy source in that area and always acts independently, objectively and honestly. Depending on who hires them, they can be a party-appointed expert (hired by one of the parties) or a court- or third-party-appointed expert (appointed by the court from the list of professionals).

This will depend on the purpose of the report and if the dispute is to be settled in court or privately. An expert’s report is linked to a legal action or trial, whereas an arbitration is linked to a dispute between individuals to be settled out of court and for which an independent arbitrator is appointed.

Once we have received the order, our experts will contact the client to arrange a visit to the property. Meanwhile, we ask for all the documents the client can provide on the property (land registry, administrative, legal, accountancy and technical documents). Depending on each case, we will ask for oral or written information from third parties or official bodies and we will run the checks required for each case. After analysing all the data collected, the expert will issue the report and/or opinion and send it to the client.
