FAQ Appraisal and expert opinion

What is the point of a private appraisal?

In order to find an out-of-court solution to disputed facts, a private expert opinion is useful. The private expert opinion is prepared on the initiative of one of the contracting parties or, for mediation purposes, often on behalf of both contracting parties.

What does it mean to examine a claim on the merits?

The supplementary audit on the merits means that a contract law audit is carried out to determine to what extent the performance formulated in a claim is contractually owed at all or not.

What does it mean to examine a claim in terms of amount?

After an examination of the reason for the contract, an examination of the amount can take place. In this check, the service rates, quantities and also the unit prices are closely examined on the basis of the contract calculation. This examination forms the basis for the commercial negotiation.

What services are provided by albrings + müller in determining the structural defects when the warranty expires?

We first evaluate the construction target owed for acceptance at that time on the basis of the acceptance protocols, the available inspection documents and the maintenance protocols. During an on-site inspection, the condition of the structural measure is determined and compared with the target performance owed. Any remaining deviations or defects are recorded and documented in the form of a report.

What is the added value in determining the structural defects at warranty expiry?

The added value for the client is that justified claims can be submitted to the contractor within the warranty periods and the client is spared additional costs.
