Expert Witness for Arbitration or Independent Expert referral, Court or PACT

Expert Witness for Arbitration or Independent Expert referral, Court or PACT

Where a rent review cannot be agreed by way of a private treaty settlement by negotiation, then most leases provide for a dispute resolution process, either to an arbitrator or an independent expert.

The independent arbitrator or expert will decide on the rent to be paid at the review, and DWD are highly experienced in providing representations as Expert Witnesses to the third party appointee.

Under a lease renewal, and a protected lease, any dispute is referred to the Court for a decision.  As an alternative means of dispute resolution and encouraged by the Courts following the Jackson Reforms, the dispute be it the rent or lease terms can be referred under PACT (Professional Arbitration under Court Terms) – see RICS Dispute Resolution Services
