In the UK, there is an independent professional body called RICS or The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, whose goal is to maintain and improve high standards in the areas of surveying and construction. If you are a surveyor who has met the required standards of the RICS, you will be credited with a seal of approval by this body and can now be called a chartered surveyor.
Featured in this article is James McPhail, a chartered surveyor whose fascination and love for architecture, culture and design has brought his works around the UK.
He is said to be able to attend to all areas of work privately inside the M25 zone, and can also assist in a project even if far away from home and requires traveling. He has many years of experience in the industry that bolster his scope of expert administrations. Gathering of divider arrangements, working in engineering configuration, and transactions in leasehold augmentation are among the jobs that he can conduct. Other jobs that he can take on are helping you with rent designs, assist in licenses that modify extraordinary works, can furnish amicable administration based on your needs and custom fit it for you, and can make consultation with other surveyors if need be.
From the qualities mentioned above, to be a chartered surveyor then has to have a high level of technical ability, with work that can approach construction, land or property with a wide range of specialty. You would want to hire only the best surveyors as these professionals would assess and oversee your buildings, projects and environments.
It is better to have a building assessed before the offer is made, and since there are various kinds of surveying, you can start with the help of a building surveyor. Not only is building surveying covers looking into damages of residential structure, but it also involves in overseeing the ongoing construction developments for purposes of commercial, industrial, residential, leisure, agricultural or retail.
Another kind of surveying, the land surveying, would concentrate on the environment more than structures made by man, and their projects would have an impact on the waste, geometrics, mineral resources and issues in the environment.
Another kind of surveying is property surveying which covers valuing, selling of existing properties, possessions and business assets.
When you have identified the type of surveyor you need, you can start contacting surveyors, and in construction projects, your architects can help you find a reliable surveyor. It is better if the surveyor is a member of the RICS in order to be assured of his or her credentials. Another better qualification of the surveyor is his or her experience of the same project as what you plan to do.
