Difference between a Surveyor and a Chartered Surveyor?

Although the terms ‘surveyor’ and ‘Chartered Surveyor’ may seem to be the same thing, they are not. Anyone in the UK can call themselves a ‘surveyor’, regardless of their qualifications, training, knowledge, experience or lack thereof. Nor do they need to be registered with a governing body or comply with best practice guidelines or standards.

In contrast, the term ‘Chartered Surveyor’ can only be used by those who have undergone rigorous training and have registered with the professional governing body, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. To become a member of the RICS, Chartered Surveyors must have undertaken specific examinations and then passed the respected Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) Assessment to prove their competence.

They must also adhere to their strict rules, guidelines and best practices, and complete the continuing professional development demanded by the RICS. This ensures that customers always receive the highest standard of service as well as complete peace of mind.

When you choose an RICS Chartered Surveyor in London, you know that your investment will be protected, and your financial future will be in safe hands. Any problems such as asbestos, damp, Japanese knotweed, faulty drains, structural problems or roof issues will be identified before they turn into a significant problem.
