What are the procedures for Single Joint Expert?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have a suspected damp/condensation in roof


I don't plan to get any surveyor before beginning claim because they don't offer guarantees in finding issues and they would have to open up the roof (incurring costs) so want permission from the Court to get a SJE instead


I want a SJE to determine cause of damp/condensation, extent of the damages (I believe roof wood is rotted out), solutions to fix these, and whether or not the builder is to blame (in order to claim from him).


What is the procedure to get a SJE expert? 


1. I first check the box on the DQ saying "Yes" to "Are you asking for the court’s permission to use the written evidence of an expert?" and 


"If Yes, state why and give the name of the expert (if known) and the area of expertise and the likely cost if appointed."


"Damp surveyors did not offer guarantees to find the cause of damp/condensation and the surveyors would have to open up roof (incurring costs) to look for the cause of the damp, therefore want Single Joint Expert in Damp/Condensation."


2. Make N244 application stating:

What order are you asking the Court to make and why?
“An order that a single joint expert be appointed to determine (issue 1), (issue 2) etc”.

3. Find a company which claims to do CPR 35 compliant reports for damp/condensation, email them? ... I haven't got any of these companys to respond yet, could I just ask the Court to appoint one?


Is there anything else I need to know? Do I need to file a "letter of instruction"?  or any special documents I need to file.. I am completely new to appointing/instructing experts and the procedure relating to this.


Thank you for any comments
