Your home is probably the most expensive purchase you’ll ever make; therefore you want the entire operation to be as smooth as possible. Whether you plan to live in your house, sell it or rent it out – you want to be sure that you’re in safe hands. That’s the job of a RICS Surveyor. If you’re a first time buyer or a seasoned professional, knowing you’ve got impartial guidance every step of the way is extremely reassuring.
A RICS Surveyor will provide an unbiased and reliable service that you can depend on. Whether you need specialist advice on property, land, construction or environmental issues – a professional chartered surveyor can help you through each step.
RICS is the world’s leading organisation as a regulator for both professional firms and individuals. The job of a RICS Surveyor is to enable and maintain the highest possible standards. As a RICS recognised surveying firm, we strive to maintain the standards and provide the basis for unparalleled client confidence in the sector.
Even though a property survey is optional, they can help you avoid expensive and unwanted surprises further down the line. How many of you can say you’d inspect the drains or the roofing when you’re viewing a house? That’s why the job of a RICS surveyor is so important. We get stuck into every element of the property and as we want to make sure it is a good investment.
It’s not all doom and gloom! A surveyor can also provide peace of mind by reassuring you that those hairline cracks don’t mean your dream home is falling down. For the small price of a survey, you’re getting a huge wealth of relief and information.
Look out for the Regulated by RICS seal when contacting surveying firms, found on the company’s website and stationery. It is added reassurance knowing that your survey is regulated by a world renowned and respected body. The best way to identify a RICS member is with the letters after their name. Additionally, look out for the RICS logo – only qualified members and recognised firms are permitted to use the RICS logo.
The job of a RICS surveyor is to provide information that might reconsider whether to buy the property or use the unbiased information you have to renegotiate the price. RICS members are regularly updated with skills, knowledge and industry news to ensure they’re offering the best possible service and clear, impartial expert advice at all times.
But what if it goes wrong? Well, that’s probably why you need a RICS Surveyor more than ever! RICS means you’re protected by a complaint handling procedure. If you’re not satisfied with a firm’s course of action and you believe they’ve broken the RICS Rules of Conduct, then you’re resolutely within your rights to contact the Professional Conduct Team.
In knowing the firm has a recognised complaints procedure in place, RICS provides security for consumers to access to free independent redress and Professional Indemnity Insurance to protect you.
The job of a RICS surveyor starts by identifying what survey is right for your property. From there, we ensure that we continuously deliver the highest level of professional service for our clients. At Avery & Co, we’re regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in line with their stringent regulatory standards.
