The new RICS Home Survey Standard is a professional statement with a set of mandatory requirements for members delivering condition- based home surveys. The statement aims to significantly increase consistency, transparency and competency across all Residential Surveying in the UK and will stand alone as the single standard for home surveys.

It will be published on the 18th November 2019 and will become effective on 1st June 2020.

All requirements are divided into 3 main areas of home survey services: setting up the service, carrying out the service and the report.

This seminar will cover all changes and rules for the Setting up the service section, which include:
  • Qualifications and experience
  • Knowledge of locality and nature of property
  • Client liaison
  • Levels of service
  • Terms of engagement
Seminars are relevant for residential sector professionals involved in delivering condition based residential surveys as well as industry professionals involved in the home buying & selling sector.

If you are interested in Carrying out the service and Report sections, please follow this link.
The published time is when registration opens. The seminar will begin 30 minutes later.
