Details :

Water seepage problems in buildings have long been a concern for building occupants, owners and government authorities world‐wide. There are very few guidelines and testing procedures for detection and diagnosis of water seepage problems applicable to Hong Kong’s high rise and high density built environment under strata title ownerships. There are also discrepancies in the approach and application of tests and interpretation of results in the course of investigation and diagnosis. Limitations in terms of knowledge on building construction and services, appropriate time and timing to inspect, access and resources for investigations, etc.  are the main hurdles in arriving at the correct diagnosis. The development and publication of “Professional Guide for the Detection and Diagnosis of Water Seepage in Residential Buildings” would assist professional building surveyors to attain a more standardized approach and procurement in the detection and diagnostic process of solving water seepage problems.

 

From time to time, the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors receives requests from courts and instructing solicitors for nomination of party’s expert or parties’ single joint expert for water leakage disputes.  The BSD Committee of List of Experts (Water Leakage) (“CLEWL”) was formed in late 2011 to handle matters arising.  The List of Experts (Water Leakage) has been formalized recently and will be uploaded to HKIS web-site for public’s information.
