RICS Regulated Firm 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.
Allied Surveyors and Valuers Ltd is essentially a cooperative, owned by its 31 shareholding Chartered Surveyors, covering England and Wales. Allied is well established within the arena of mortgage valuations but has a particular specialisation in the field of residential investment property from BTLs to complex HMOs. With an established private client business, the surveyors are proficient in carrying out RICS HomeBuyer Reports, RICS Condition Reports and Building Surveys. The company also has a commercial property valuation department. All surveyors are specialists in their field and the Regional Directors have worked for many years in their geographical areas to live up to the firm’s mantra of offering ‘national coverage with local knowledge’. The business uses Quest Associates and Valuation Exchange (Xit2) connectivity software and is innovative in the use of valuation data and on-site equipment but resists such initiatives as “doorstep sign-off” as the surveyors believe that further research and contemplation are part of the process of diligent analysis and reporting. The company is quality assured by Lloyds Register with a rigorous internal auditing regime run by the company’s Risk Management Director.
