I think you misunderstood my question. We've been ordered to have a joint instruction letter for the surveyor. But we do not agree. I explained in my question some points of disagreement. My question was related to that point. What do I do if by the deadline given by the court we haven't reached an agreement about the content of that letter?
OK sorry I'm a bit stressed about all this
I've been typing all the details but somehow it did not save.
Here are more details:
Issues: they say resources debts and needs, I say key issue is disagreement over valuation of property and other points not of surveyor expertise.
Documents : they want just the title, I want to add granted planning permission with extensions plan and also the listing of the property by local authority
Valuation: they want simple market value, I want potential value based on the information given by documents
Expert: he has been picked up online during court hearing so I want to add he has to confirm he hasn't worked for ex before ( ex in properties)
Arrangements : I want to be present when expert comes but they say no just the ex will be to give key
I believe that this information should be made available to the surveyor and it would be up to him to see if such a potential has an influence on the value. The other side does not want that. They don't want the listing to be mentioned either.
In the court order it says we can ask questions after the valuation but that would be at an extra cost. This is the reason I wanted the letter to include all elements available.
What about the issues section of the letter? As I said the only issue is disagreement over valuation so why other side does not state it?
And another point regarding lead solicitor willing to be only one in contact with surveyor. I want to be informed.
I also asked for all communications to be included in report (as advised by a solicitor online) but other dismiss this saying I'm suspicious!
Thank you for your help
Thank you for the link. You are really helping me with your feedback.
What I mean by issue is that in the sample letter the other side sent there is a part titled "issues" and there they have put the issues of our case but not the issue for which we're seeking help through surveyor. That is the reason why I asked them to change to mention "disagreement over valuation" which is relevant for the surveyor.
In your previous post you were saying that we can go back to court or just send our own letter to surveyor. If no agreement is reached, and I don't want to delay more, do I just inform the other side of my intention to send my instruction letter and later send them copy of my letter with documents enclosed?
