When do you need a Surveyor?
Chartered surveyors are professionals who assess the value and condition of a house, commercial premises or construction projects; they help to plan the creation of a new development, and advise you on obtaining planning permission, renovating a property, and environmental issues. There are different types of chartered surveyors and they all belong to the professional body, The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, which is online at: www.RICS.org.
You would call in a chartered surveyor if you wanted a valuation for a future or existing project or renovation. Surveyors can value land, buildings, or machinery; normally choosing to specialize in one area of work. For example, Greenward Surveyors specializes in commercial and domestic properties and we also work on listed buildings and those of architectural importance across Dorset & Hampshire.
