With further members of the Marshall Group now on the route to becoming chartered surveyors. We look at the importance of being chartered and the benefits a company and client will receive with having the services of an inhouse chartered surveyor at their disposal.

So first, what exactly is RICS?

RICS stands for the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. It is the international body who regulate and train chartered surveyors and other property professionals across many countries.

Why is RICS necessary?

Surveying may not seem like a glamorous job, but it is vitally important for everyone’s safety. If our surveyors don’t do their jobs properly, we end up working and you end up living in and around potentially unsafe buildings, not to mention the money that could be lost through buying and selling unsound property.

Why do I need a RICS surveyor?

The benefit a client receives by choosing a company with a RICS surveyor is that they will have complied with the “RICS Rules of Conduct” which consists of a set of strict rules and regulations. This prevents them from performing less than standard work and means that you get exactly what you pay for – an in-depth and precise quality survey.

Why do we need a RICS surveyor?

The Marshall Group employ both Building Surveyors and Structural Engineers and all our Chartered Building Surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). This ensures our Building Survey Reports are comprehensive and will never need referring to a Building Surveyor or Structural Engineer for further investigation at a further cost unless in the unlikely event that opening of further areas is required.
