What is a RICS Surveyor?

We are often asked “What is a RICS Surveyor?” So we decided to explain it for our clients and show them why it is so important to choose a surveyor who is RICS accredited.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) was established in 1792 and is the pre-eminent international professional body of accreditation for professionals working in the land, property and construction sectors in the UK and around the world.  They impose strict professional, business and ethical standards on all members, providing the basis for exceptional and unparalleled client confidence within this sector, ensuring that clients have confidence in the quality of the service they will receive.

Using a RICS surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, valuation or building survey means that you will be dealing with a trusted professional able to offer expertise, specialist knowledge and impartial advice. All RICS qualified surveyors will have undergone extensive training and accreditation making them highly qualified and experienced and able to offer you the best advice possible.

All RICS surveyors have to follow their very clear set of best practice guidelines and as part of this all RICS members must also regularly update their knowledge and skills through continuing professional development to ensure that they are always aware of current guidelines and legislation.

Choosing a RICS surveyor brings more than just peace of mind. All RICS surveyors must carry professional indemnity insurance adding a layer of protection to the client in cases of professional negligence. There is also a complaints handling procedure to refer to if you are unhappy with the service you are provided with.

All of this means you are assured of a quality, impartial service. Avery & Co. is regulated by RICS and all of our surveyors are RICS member certified. By choosing Avery & Co. to carry out your survey, valuation or building survey, you will receive the highest standards of professionalism in all work undertaken.
