What Is RICS And Why Do I Need To Choose A RICS Surveyor?

RICS stands for the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. Established in 1792, it is an international body of accreditation which regulates and trains chartered surveyors, estate agents, letting agents, and property managers. RICS is a world-renowned and respected community with more than 125,000 professional members worldwide.

A RICS surveyor is a trusted professional who offers expertise, specialist knowledge, and impartial advice. They always act in your interest to provide guidance and advice based on your individual circumstances and unique situation.

A RICS qualified surveyor will have the characters MRICS, AssocRICS, or FRICS after their name. They undergo extensive training and are highly experienced, making them extremely qualified and trusted to carry out your survey.

RICS surveyors must also follow a clear set of best practices to ensure they provide an exceptional service and work to the highest industry standards. As part of this, all RICS members regularly update their skills and knowledge through professional career-long development to make sure you always receive the best possible service.

When choosing a RICS surveyor, not only can you guarantee the highest level of skill and experience, but RICS also ensures that all qualified members follow strict rules, regulations, and codes of conduct to ensure professionalism is maintained at all times to give you peace of mind.

To further give you peace of mind and client confidence, all RICS surveyors must carry professional indemnity insurance which protects you in cases of professional negligence. As part of this quality assurance, if you are unhappy with the service provided, you are protected by a complaints handling procedure to ensure your full security.
