What Is the Role of Chartered Surveyor?


Chartered Surveying encapsulates a wide and varied profession ranging across property, construction and land sectors, and takes on a number of roles in surveying and valuing all types of properties. While they employ a common set of skills in their job, the role of a Chartered Surveyor varies from project to project.

At the most basic level, the Chartered Surveyor values a property and assesses it for defects or anything of notable interest to the client. However, their role then expands into producing a number of surveys, giving advice, solving disputes, looking at environmental issues, overseeing construction projects and commercial properties, along with a whole host of other areas.

In the residential property sector, Chartered Surveyors offer a wide variety of services for every type of property, such as survey and valuation advice to home-owners or buyers, building defect advice (which looks at issues such as dampness and condensation, flooding, cracks, timber defects and many more) or valuations for tax or separation purposes. They also offer advice on building and land disputes, whether a dispute has arisen from a neighbour over a proposed building project or alterations to an existing property, or a disagreement between the property owner and contractor over the quality, time or cost of the building. The surveyor can investigate the situation, and then guide a property owner on the best course of action to take. Chartered Surveyors will also deal with disputes over the Party Wall Act 1996, a procedure which must be followed where properties share a wall or party fence wall.

Chartered Surveyors are also able to offer Expert Witness reports on a variety of issues. These reports are normally required in legal disputes, and can act as evidence in a court of law. In the majority of cases, these reports are provided in the form of a written statement or report, however they are sometimes delivered orally in court. The Chartered Surveyor can be used by either party and must act with complete impartiality.

Outside residential properties, Chartered Surveyors also offer a range of services. For example, Construction Surveyors manage ongoing construction projects, Environmental Surveyors look at issues concerned with a building's environment or the impact of a new construction, Technical Surveyors focus on the use and safety of equipment and machinery within a business, and Mineral and Mining Surveyors look at mineral resources, management of waste, and seek potential sites, mines and quarries.
