Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)
Our Surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, qualified to carry out surveys and valuations on commercial and residential properties throughout the UK and certified to carry out the popular RICS approved Homebuyers reports and valuations. With around 100,000 qualified members in some 140 countries, RICS is one of the most respected organisations for professionals involved in land, property, construction and associated environmental issues.
Clients’ money protection: RICS rules state that firms regulated by RICS shall preserve the security of clients’ money entrusted to it. We therefore ensure that clients’ money is protected; any clients’ money entrusted to us is held in a client account, separate from our own money and can only be used for purposes agreed with us by the client. RICS also funds a Client Money Protection Scheme – a free service provided by RICS to clients of firms that are regulated by RICS.
Independent Estate Agents Group (IEAG)
IEAG is an association of leading independent Estate Agents and Chartered Surveyors from across the country, consisting of wholly independent firms with a long track record of providing a high quality multi-specialism professional service. The group provides an experienced voice within the estate agency profession providing integrity, guidance and help to members, practitioners and consumers.
The Property Redress Scheme
We are part of The Property Redress Scheme – a government authorized Consumer Redress Scheme for lettings, property management and estate agents and other property professionals. The Property Redress Scheme is approved by Government under the Alternative Dispute Resolution for Consumer Disputes (Competent Authorities and Information) Regulations 2015. This means that domestic customers of estate agents have the right to take certain complaints to the PRS if the firm or company fails to resolve the problem. We are also members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) who handle complaints about their members.
