Expert Report


What is an Expert Report?

An Expert Report is advice to a consumer, contractor or consultant prior to legal action taking place. Quite often we may have already prepared a Technical Report which should have identified the main issues. However, an Expert Report is in a specific form such as a Scott Schedule with photographic or other evidence annexed. It contains the Expert's agreement to comply with the Expert Witness Code of Conduct in the relevant jurisdiction.

Who does it?

A specially trained building consultant with expertise in Tribunal, Mediation, Arbitration, Reference or Court procedures.

How long does it take?

Written Reports are available within 7 to 21 days of inspection and an urgent 5 day service can be arranged on request for straightforward matters for a additional fee.


To answer specific questions or instructions, identify and analyse the main issues, collect evidence and prepare a Report in a form acceptable to the person, Tribunal or Court that will resolve the problem. The expert from Tyrrells may need to attend the hearing in the Court or Tribunal to discuss the Report.


Consumers and their advisors need accurate advice about the relevant issues in a dispute. Their own opinion may be wrong and they may miss the numerous opportunities to support their case with the right evidence. With building, timber pest or architectural matters, it is essential to include any supporting information from the various regulations, Codes and Australian Standards.

What is inspected?

The extent of investigation depends upon the type and complexity of matter. Often an inspection of a building may be necessary as well as an interview with the client; a review of any evidence including photographs; an assessment of documentation; the researching statutory requirements; and, scientific testing of materials.

Which types of properties are inspected?

All properties depending upon the client's problem.
