Shropshire surveyor to address national conference

May 14, 2018 at 5:12 PM

A Shropshire chartered surveyor will be among the headline speakers at a national conference for rural surveyors taking place in June.

Philip Meade, registered valuer and arbitrator with Davis Meade Property Consultants at Oswestry, will be addressing the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) rural conference which takes place on Wednesday, June 20 at the Royal Agricultural University at Cirencester.

Philip is the technical author of the RICS recent guide to rural arbitration and he will be explaining the arbitration process and the need for arbitration to be short, speedy and effective. He will also be sharing his expertise and experience in matters of agriculture and dispute resolution.

“I am honoured to be invited to address this annual conference. The guidance was put together by a group of experienced arbitrators and has been designed to assist rural chartered surveyors who are appointed to act in arbitrations whether as advocates, experts or the arbitrator,” said Philip.

“Rural arbitrations have changed significantly over the years, and very often not for the better.The process tends to be clouded in mystery and the risks and costs of settling a dispute (often a rent review) by arbitration are all too often seen as too foreboding.

“This is unfortunate because at its simplest, arbitration should be cost effective and user friendly and having the opportunity to try and demystify the process a bit by being invited to speak on the subject at such a key event on the rural surveyors’ calendar is an ideal way to promote this.”

RICS Rural Conference is the annual platform for rural surveyors to discuss the future of the sector and how the profession can continue to deliver and ensure the prosperity of the industry with Brexit, valuations, renewable energy compulsory purchase orders and tax also on the agenda.

Philip will also be addressing the RICS CPD day on July 3 at Shropshire Conference Centre, Shrewsbury.
