27/04/2012 - The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) acknowledge the work of Chartered Surveyors surveying mobile / park homes. 

 

Some park home surveyors state that the RICS do not recognise the surveying of mobile homes because mobile homes are Chattels in law. Whilst mobile homes are indeed chattels in law to state that the RICS do not recognise this work is incorrect and is we feel potentially misleading to the general public and so we would like to clarify this for the benefit of our clients and the general public. We have sought and obtained specific clarification from the RICS Headquarters in London on this issue.      

 

The RICS stated to us that 'the work of Chartered Surveyors covers a wide range of professional skills encompassing the valuation of assets of all kinds, including land, property, plant and machinery, arts & antiques, business (intangible) assets and other chattels, including mobile / park homes'.

 

The RICS go on the say 'the survey and valuation of all property assets, whether permanent or temporary, fixed or mobile, certainly comes within the scope of activity of RICS members where such individuals are suitably experienced to carry out such work. This is a relatively small area of activity compared with some other work undertaken by (RICS) members, but this in no way reduces the importance of the delivery of professional advice consistent with those required of all RICS members'

 

Nick Norrie, Principal Chartered Surveyor of Subject II Survey Ltd, stated 'I, and I am sure other Chartered Surveyors engaged in this sector, welcome and note the acknowledgement from the RICS regarding the work of RICS members in surveying mobile / park homes and that as Chartered Surveyors we will continue to provide professional surveys of pre owned park homes.   

 

New 'Green deal' energy efficiency and improvement works for park homes;

This is a multi billion pound government initiative for works that includes park homes. The Government has defined a park home as a 'non standard' form of construction, and has decided that an experienced Chartered Surveyor, (not just a park home surveyor), will be required to certify the park home as suitable for the proposed improvement measures. There have been concerns expressed regarding unsuitable improvements to park homes. We can provide this service to park home owners direct or via the installers. We expect demand for this service to be high and please contact us for further information. If you are having Green deal funded energy efficiency and improvement works carried out you will need this service.  

  

01/01/2014 - We are delighted to announce that from the 1st January 2014 our Principal Chartered Surveyor Nick Norrie MRICS has become a Chartered Building Engineer adopting the professional designation C. Build E in addition to MRICS and MCIOB.
