RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) is an international professional body with over 100,000 members. We represent everything professional and ethical in land, property and construction.
Our members are known as chartered surveyors and are recognised by the designation after their name: MRICS (Member), FRICS (Fellow) and AssocRics (Associate).
We regulate and promote the profession; maintain the highest educational and professional standards; protect clients and consumers via a strict code of ethics; and provide impartial advice, analysis and guidance.
A point worth noting is many lending and financial institutions will only recognise the full member's qualifications as opposed as to the AssocRICS (Associate).
Rob Gascoigne is a chartered surveyor recognised by the designation MRICS (Full Member status whose ongoing continued professional development is continually maintained and updated).
