Property Journal

We recognise that it is useful for property professionals who specialise in one area to keep an eye on what is happening in others.

Published six times a year, Property Journal brings together Commercial, Residential and Arts coverage in a combined format.

The journal contains high-quality technical material in clearly defined sections, as well as some material that crosses professional groups to reach a wider audience.

Recent isues of Property Journal from the past two years are available below. Earlier archive issues can be obtained from our Library (e library@rics.org).
