What can an independant Chartered Surveyor do for you? Read More…
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is an independent, representative professional body which regulates property professionals and surveyors in the United Kingdom and other sovereign nations.
RICS provides education and training standards, protects consumers with strict codes of practice and advises governments and business.
The motto of RICS is “Est modus in rebus” (which translates into English as: “There is measure in all things”).
Entry to membership of the RICS is via four main routes: academic; graduate; technical; and senior professional. The RICS has links with a number of universities worldwide, with whom they have accredited approved courses which satisfy part of the qualification requirements to become trainee surveyors. The RICS also offers expedited routes to membership for qualified professional members of some partner associations.
Members must update their knowledge and competence during their working life through RICS’ Continuous Professional Development regulations so the advice they give will be of the highest and most professional standard.
