    Thnks for your comments. It just seems crazy that a registered professional can make such a basic error and not be accountable for it to the people most affected  - ie US!  Will try with RICS to see what they say. 
    Unless you have the survey report, you should not even dream of reporting the surveyor to RICS. 

    It's entirely possible that your buyer has either lied or misunderstood the report. It would be grossly unfair to the surveyor if you complain to RICS and it turns out that you have been misled about what the report said.  

    No reliance should be placed on the above! Absolutely none, do you hear?
