Why use an RICS registered valuer?

Why use an RICS registered valuer?

Valuations underpin nearly every financial decision we make – from home mortgages and investments to corporate finance transactions, assessment of company accounts and stock exchange listings.

Any person or organisation that occupies, owns, develops or trades assets in today’s global markets relies on a valuer’s expertise, quality standards and ethics.

Raising standards

Valuation is one of the key RICS member practices. Valuer registration is our quality assurance mechanism that monitors all registered RICS members who carry out Red Book valuations and ensures consistent standards. By appointing an RICS registered valuer, you can be confident that you are working with regulated and qualified professionals who:

  • adhere to the Red Book valuation standards
  • are committed to openness and transparency
  • are experts in their field, delivering credible and high-quality reports.

Valuer registration aims to ensure the quality of valuations, raise the credibility of valuers and provide clients with a clearly identifiable designation of international standards, quality and the consistent application of Red Book standards. We believe that a thriving and strong profession, operating under a single global standard and modern regulation system, is good for professionals, clients and society.

For QLD and WA members

Please note that RICS Valuer Registration has no connection to the statutory registration of valuers practising in Queensland, under the Valuer Registration Board of Queensland, or the licensing of Land Valuers in Western Australia. They have their own obligations, rules and regulations that we do not monitor. All RICS professionals have a duty to comply with the statutory requirements that may apply to them in the geographical location(s) in which they practise.
