RICS - Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors

Many of DMC's  panel of Associates, are  Fellows of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and as RICS Accredited Mediators they are able to offer comprehensive impartial advice and professional guidance in matters relating to land & property disputes.

RICS is an independent professional body originally established in the UK by Royal Charter. Since 1868, RICS has been committed to setting and upholding the highest standards of excellence and integrity - providing impartial, authoritative advice on key issues affecting businesses and society.

RICS is a regulator of both its individual members and firms enabling it to maintain the highest standards and providing the basis for unparalleled client confidence in the sector. It comprises a worldwide network of over 100,000 property professionals and is the world's leading qualification when it comes to professional standards in land, property and construction. DMC is regulated by the RICS under this scheme.

As an accredited provider member of the Civil Mediation Council, the RICS Dispute Resolution Service has, since 2008, accredited some 25 its own mediators.  Whilst practicing for many years in the dispute and adjudication sectors, Dispute Mediation Consultancy are proud to have the first chartered land surveyor to attain RICS Accredited Mediator status; thus demonstrating their desire to remain at the forefront of the Alternative Dispute Resolution process. Many of our panel trained on the first few courses of mediators accredited by RICS. Indeed the first RICS Director of Mediator training Andrew Goodman is an  Associate panel member of the Dispute Mediation Consultancy.

The great advantage of RICS Accredited Mediators is that they are able to bring both their professional skills and their practical day to day knowledge to the mediation process; this enables them to be well placed to help parties reach agreement and provide a long term solution to disputes.

Why use RICS Chartered Surveyor

How can an RICS Chartered Surveyor help you?

Chartered surveyors are highly experienced and qualified professionals who offer impartial, specialist advice on property issues.

Their services are diverse. Beyond valuing homes or looking for structural defects, they provide more expertise in property, construction and related environmental issues than anyone else in the field.

Why it's important to use an RICS surveyor

RICS members must update their knowledge and competence throughout their working life, through RICS' Continuous Professional Development regulations, so you can be confident the advice you receive will be of the highest and most professional standard. RICS members must adhere to  Rules of Conduct, and consumers are protected by a formal complaints handling procedure.

How to identify a member or a member firm

RICS members can be identified by the letters after their name. MRICS or FRICS indicates that the surveyor you use has qualified as a Chartered surveyor. TechRICS indicates that the surveyor has qualified as a technical surveyor.

All listings on the Find a Surveyor service are by RICS member firms. Member firms are also entitled to use the mark of membership.
