Local surveyor reappointed to panel of arbitrators

Published June 2nd, 2015

Matthew Anwyl, managing partner of Berrys, has been reappointed to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) panel of rural arbitrators.

The panel consists of 31 rural surveyors who have all had to pass rigorous assessments before being appointed to serve for a five-year term. Matthew was first appointed by the President of RICS to join in 2009 and has now been re-assessed to serve a second term.

“Arbitration is a vital service and I am extremely pleased to be part of the rural panel,” said Matthew, who is based at the Shrewsbury office of Berrys.

As an arbitrator, Matthew determines agricultural property business disputes relating to matters such as rent reviews, end of tenancy settlements, notices to quit, partnership disputes, contract farming agreements, leases, licences and matrimonial settlements.

“As a member of the panel I can either be appointed by RICS Dispute Resolution Service to sit as an arbitrator or accept private appointments directly from the parties or their advisers,” he explained.

He is also part of a national Dispute Resolution Working Party established by RICS to look at alternative dispute resolving procedures including developing a simplified arbitration process which could help reduce the cost of arbitrations.

Matthew is a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, the Agricultural Law Association, and a fellow of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers. He has been the Managing Partner of Berrys since 2008

Matthew can be contacted at Berrys, Shrewsbury Business Park on 01743 267064 or email matt.anwyl@berrys.uk.com.
