Alex - I am case about adding 2 nd claimant . Also just

This answer was rated:

Hi Alex - I am case about adding 2 nd claimant . Also just had conference call with independent surveyor court ordered us to appoint and the 2 defendants . Half way through one of the dependents ( v bullying character ) insisted that she and her own surveyor attend when indep surveyor comes to inspect property on Thursday - presumably to continue to try and put her view ! Is she allowed to attend and with her surveyor and even talk to indep surveyor ? What steps should I take to protect my position ? Thanks
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Did the court order that she could attend as well with her own surveyor? If not then the answer is no. She can attend because it's a joint report and you can both be there. But the other surveyor can't attend unless permitted by the court.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Thanks can I check that if she follows the independent surveyor around or try to talk / harangue him should I say anything too - will the surveyor say this is not appropriate ? Can she bring her lawyer with her to add comment ? This bullying style is her trademark in other cases so need to know how to ensure surveyor stays independent and honours his brief ? I said originally I will leave you o inspect site of accident and subsequent repairs and not talk as I accept you are here as independent surveyor but is this a wrong tactic to take ?
They can't comment - they can ONLY observe - nothing else. She can't say or or do anything.
Does this help?
