Some RICS professional guidance publications can be bought from the RICS Shop.
Members should note that when an allegation of professional negligence is made against a surveyor, the court is likely to take into account the contents of any relevant professional guidance published by RICS in deciding whether or not the surveyor has acted with reasonable competence.
Outdated guidance is archived, however you can still obtain a reference copy by contacting our library.
