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.

Damp

Damp (or dampness) in a material usually refers to its content of free moisture (i.e. non-chemically bound), often to the state of a material when it is in a condition between being dry and being wet. Damp is an often misunderstood term. It tends to have a rather negative connotation, i.e. that if a material is damp there is an element of risk of material degradation or threat to health, whereas in reality all porous materials subject to the UK climate will contain some moisture from the air. Each porous building material used in house construction generally functions satisfactorily within its own particular safe range of moisture content, dependent on the location of the material in the construction and the function it is required to carry out. In construction, dampness is unwanted moisture or moisture that should not be there.
