News: RICS seeks to improve estate agency standards

Tue, 01 Nov 11

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors has launched its new edition of its UK Residential Property Standards with the aim of changing the way people view estate agents.

In the UK many people have a negative view of estate agents and with anyone able to set up a sales/lettings agency, many people have doubted whether agents have the expertise needed. In fact, some even prefer to use websites to buy or rent property independently.

But RICS hopes that its new Blue Book will provide residential sales and letting professionals with best practice advice to enhance the quality of the service provided.
