I would ask the surveyor to provide you with his calculation and comparable property information that supports his valuation and forward the same to District Valuer. It may be more efficient to ask the surveyor to discuss the valuation with the District Valuer.

To ensure that you can disengage without the client incurring a CH late filing penalty - even though this appears deserved, it will be an easier disengagement without penalties - consider shortening the ARD by 1 day to but further tine to file at CH. When everything complete including you being paid, disengage. Not only will you reduce your stress levels, it is most likely he will go to a local firm, thus you will have passed the problem to a competitor.

Where the business owners have no accounting/bookkeeping experience they at the mercy of their “bookkeeper” unless we advise them that things are incorrect and making decisions of the data, they hold is dangerous. We normally get a response from the bookkeeper “I have always done it that way”. We offer half day training sessions to bookkeepers as if they can’ get things right it makes the year-end work easier and is, of course, of benefit to the business owners.
A good way forward we have found is to say to the business owner, we would like to get your bookkeeper in for a free half-day training session to go over one or two areas to ensure that the management information you use is more reliable.

We simply advise them that we can undertake this work at a fee of £X for those wanting chapter and verse. More often and not they are willing to accept a lower level of explanation. Most of our instructions are on a fixed fee basis, thus we have to watch "work creep"

Did you sign a contract with either or both agents? If there is no contract with agent 2 it's hard to see how they could pursue you, particularly as you would be able to prove you have paid agent 1. I’m playing the barrack room lawyer, but that’s my opinion.
