Do I Need to Choose A RICS Surveyor?

Written by

When buying a property, it is important to inspect any potential issues that it could have, before you make any agreements or complete the purchase. Whilst many new buyers may feel inconvenienced by the expense of a property inspection, it actually has the power to save thousands in repair costs and is one of the most significant aspects of home buying.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) conducted research which showed that many buyers are unknowingly setting themselves up for an average of £5,750 in repair bills on their new home.

The global, professional body of The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors promotes and enforces the highest international standards in the valuation, management and development of land, real estate, construction and infrastructure. The RICSaccredit and regulate survey companies, introducing standards for property quality and control. They are an internationally respected community with more than 130,000 members worldwide. Members are required to follow strict regulations and codes of conduct which are in place to ensure that all surveys are completed to an optimum standard. The accredited surveyors can offer experience, specialist knowledge, and will always act in the interest of the customer. Through extensive initial training and continuous career-long development, the skills of a RICS surveyor are kept up-to-date; ensuring that the services you receive are always the best possible.

The indemnity insurance of a RICS surveyor protects a customer in the unlikely event of a surveyor not meeting RICS standards in the work they complete. Whilst the professionalism of each member ensures that it is highly unlikely that you will ever need to use this, you are guaranteed no such protective insurance if you opt for a non-RICS surveyor. It is always better to know that you have put your trust and money into an intensively regulated and reputable surveyor, who is known for delivering outstanding results.
