Martin Hutchings QC and Tom Roscoe of Wilberforce Chambers will be giving a presentation on The Surveyor’s Role: Court, Arbitration and Expert Determination.

  • How the procedures differ
  • How the surveyor’s role differs in each
  • When and how decisions can be challenged
  • Negligent valuation claims: the surveyor’s role as defendant and as expert

Martin has an outstanding record of success at all levels and is recommended as a leading silk for property matters in all the directories. He was voted Real Estate Silk of the Year by Chambers and Partners in 2014. He has particular experience in commercial landlord and tenant matters including business tenancies, dilapidations; insolvency-related lease issues, and consent for alienation. His most recent success was in the ground-breaking restrictive covenant case: Birdlip v Hunter [2016] which re-defines the law relating to restrictive covenants and schemes of development.

Tom has a busy junior practice spanning the range of Chambers’ main areas of work, regularly appearing in county courts across the country, the High Court and increasingly in Courts and Tribunals in other jurisdictions. He has extensive experience of advising and acting on a wide range of property disputes, as well as on professional negligence cases arising from property transactions. In 2015, Tom undertook a three-month secondment with Campbells and worked in both their Cayman Islands and BVI offices, primarily on a substantial professional negligence and insolvency claims. He has since appeared in the Cayman Islands Court of Appeal on a probate dispute concerning the ownership of parcels of development land in Grand Cayman.
