RICS - Required to work for Public Advantage, twitter debate 31 Jan

Recommended Posts

You may not appreciate that the RICS Royal Charter requires them to act for the 'public advantage'.  Whilst the RICS concern themselves with commercial property mainly they do play a role in the residential sphere.  Given this obligation to act for the public advantage and as the nation's leading body for property professionals have they honoured their obligations when you consider the catastrophic situation with UK housing...?

From their website....

"Of the many charges levelled against political and business elites, perhaps the most damning is that they have abandoned the interests of society.

This is particularly resonant for the chartered professions, whose code of ethics goes beyond mere compliance with the law.

Our Royal Charter, obliges us to act for the “public advantage”; something beyond the profit motive and broader than individual client needs.

Find out how you can join RICS President John Hughes FRICS for a live Twitter debate on the subject on 31 January. "



Perhaps some of you will have a view and will want to join the debate??

Interesting, I doubt RICS is in need of PR "washing" of some sort.I would not be surprised if the move is genuine. I give them the benefit of the doubt and commend them for this attempt of debate, and straightening their thoughts.

Its a load of Wanx.

RICs was made up as building societies tsarted issuing more mortgages.


Yes, surveyors are useful for physical aspects of the house.

Stuff likes prices and all that, totally fuxing useless. They dont look at local salaries. Youd be better off asking your Mother.
