SLTN - Hire An Agency You Can Trust

Hire An Agency You Can Trust!


Operators selling a licensed outlet can find reassurance by working with a firm that is a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), according to Peter Seymour, head of licensed trade and leisure at Graham + Sibbald.

In November last year, the RICS launched the UK Commercial Real Estate Agency Professional Statement.

Seymour said that, while there are "several levels" to the guidance published by the RICS, a Professional Statement "is the highest level of guidance".

And he argued that this Professional Statement "increases the requirements that an RICS member, undertaking a commercial estate agency instructions, must adhere to".

These standards, said Seymour, mean a greater level of trust between commercial RICS estate agents and their clients.
