RICS Rules of Conduct

Rules of Conduct for Firms

As Black Cat Services are regulated by the RICS (as well as being members), there are rules that the practice has to comply with.

As a regulated firm, we benefit from:

  • A proportionate and flexible approach that allows firms to comply with the rules in a way that suits their business size, the sphere in which they operate and the needs and demands of their clients
  • The opportunity to nominate a single point of contact in the firm and to provide compliance information to RICS through a single annual return
  • For firms holding clients’ money, a lower cost compliance regime that provides help and guidance from RICS’ own accountancy team
  • For eligible firms, the use of ‘Regulated by RICS’ on letterhead and business stationery to profit from the reputational benefits of a cutting edge professional regulatory regime, valued by clients, recognised by government and other regulators.

Rules of Conduct for Members

These rules are essential reading and apply to all members of RICS and attached classes including students, trainees and trainee technical surveyors. They are short, simple and principles-based, designed so that all members can follow them regardless of where in the world they practice and whatever their sphere of activity.
