Approaching Final Hearing and ex has provided a list of 3 surveyors for me to select, as per court order.
What should I consider when making my decision? 2 of them have a similar price under £1,000 the other is a lot more so I may chose to rule it out on that basis.
None of them are local, so I'm concerned they won't have the in-depth knowledge of school catchment, commuting etc.
My anxiousness all stems from her persistence in undervaluing the house to suit her agenda. But on the other side, there is a degree of uncertainty in the market. The value this expert places on our property will be crucial in the proceedings, because at the value I expect it to reach there is a clear argument it should be sold so we can both be rehoused.
The next step in our order if we don't agree on an expert is to ask Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors to appoint one. Which may be a better option if it's not unreasonable to reject her 3 choices.
