What does a Chartered Surveyor do?
Chartered surveyors are responsible for assessing the quality of buildings, from houses to public and commercial properties. They examine the condition of buildings and determine if there are any defects or structural issues that need to be considered.
A surveyor can call themselves a Chartered Surveyor if they have a professional qualification from RICS. (The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors). They will have MRICS or FRICS after their names to show this.
What are Valuation Surveyors?
A valuation surveyor carries out valuations on residential, commercial or industrial property, organises its sale or rent and advises on investment, development and management of properties. You may also hear them be described as commercial or residential surveyors.
