The latest High Court report where claimants are using a Surveyor as an expert witness to support their case against EQC and Southern Response.
This increasingly common issue/dispute may become - if it hasn't already! - a common theme. I am reminded of the adage about "not being able to make a silk purse out of a sows ear" (no disrespect to sows). Maybe that can be amended into "one cannot define earthquake deformation of a property with a bit of tubing, a builders pencil, and a used envelope"

Well done to Mr Cowie who has come across very well in a difficult situation.
The situation where a layperson is undertaking work that they don't fully understand is common and with the advent of cheaper better more accessible technology it becomes more and more prevalent. How many of us have been asked for the coordinates of property boundaries so people can search for them using mobile phones or handheld GPS receivers?
