Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS)
Our Managing Director, Joe Arnold, sits on RICS Residential Survey & Valuation Professional Group, providing RICS with industry insights and information on market conditions, helping shape the future of the profession. This provides Arnold & Baldwin with access to the latest information from other industry leaders, enhancing our knowledge and helping to further protect your investment.
RICS is the globally renowned regulatory body for the property industry, incorporating Royal Charter, and ensuring confidence in the quality and ethics of professionals. All of our surveyors are accredited and registered associate or full members of the RICS so you know you’re in the very best hands.
Technology is evolving rapidly in our industry. Our surveyors now collect data on iPads and access portals whilst in the property they are surveying. This gives unlimited access to historical land use maps, soil conditions, planning portals and an array of other useful information to assist our surveyors and reduce the time taken to report back to you.
The use of technology enables surveyors to communicate on-site sharing any complex issues via live video feeds, however, at Arnold & Baldwin we have a central office where all our surveyors are encouraged to congregate, to share any complicated valuations or defects found on site visits. We believe that communication is key and sharing pertinent information with the team is encouraged at all levels.
We have monthly company wide meetings which are used as a forum for discussing technical issues, industry updates and any market changes. We produce a snapshot of the leading industry market updates, along with any local issues arising, which ensures our surveyors are always fully aware of all relevant matters in your area.
