One Leicestershire’s largest independent estate agencies, which has an office in Market Harborough, has extended its team of chartered surveyors. Two members of staff recently passed their exams to become fully qualified surveyors at Andrew Granger & Co. The agency now has eight surveyors at its three branches across the county.

Mark Sandall and Elizabeth Watson both recently passed their Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) exams, making them members of the industry’s regulatory body, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), as well as RICS Registered Valuers.

The RICS Valuer Registration Scheme is a new endorsement that has recently been set up to ensure consistency in surveying and valuation practice across the UK, Europe and the world. Only correctly trained surveyors such as Mark and Elizabeth are able to use the title ‘RICS Registered Valuer’, which means that they are regularly monitored by the RICS to ensure high standards of professionalism

Mark specialises in the residential sector and handles both town and country sales and lettings across the East Midlands whilst Elizabeth’s area of expertise lies in rural work. “The industry is quite rightly tightening up on regulations to ensure that surveyors are offering reliable advice that buyers and vendors can trust,” comments Mark “We are both absolutely delighted to have passed the APC and to have met the rigorous standards set by such a well respected body as the RICS.”

The scheme is a guarantee of knowledge and expertise, whilst clients are protected by a best practice valuation. “We would urge any prospective buyer to ensure that the surveyor they use is a member of the scheme,” adds Mark. “The RICS guidelines are used across the UK and the world as an industry benchmark.”
“We are extremely proud of both Lizzie and Mark becoming chartered surveyors,” comments Rupert Harrison, Managing Partner at Andrew Granger & Co. “Their success continues to strengthen our position as one of the region’s leading agencies.”

Set up in 1989, Andrew Granger & Co has three offices across Leicestershire including the city centre and Loughborough in addition to its Harborough site. The company also has an office in London.
