Firms that come under RICS regulation are easy to spot as they use the words 'Regulated by RICS' on their letterhead and other communication materials. Regulated firms must follow the RICS Rules of Conduct for Firms and are held to a higher standard in areas such as staff training, professional indemnity insurance, complaints handling and security of clients' money.

Permitted developments

The concept of 'permitted development' is one of the most complex and potentially confusing areas of the planning system. However, it is central to the system, and clarifies what forms of development are permitted without the need to apply to the local planning authority (LPA). Surveyors will be able to help you interpret permitted developments in your circumstances to identify the scope of the permitted development, any developments specifically excluded, and provide guidance on the interpretation of the permitted development rights and any conditions that apply.
