    Surveyor Insurance 7th Dec 17 at 5:58 PM
    Hi all,

    Am looking to have a HomeBuyers Report carried out and have had a few quotes. I'd like to go with an independent surveyor (RICS certified but not working for a company) but for peace of mind wanted to know what the situation would be with indemnity insurance if (hopefully not!) we ever had to lodge a claim agains the survey.

    Do we need to check that the surveyor is insured? Or would this be a condition of their RICS membership? And what would happen if say, the surveyor no longer worked - would it still be possible to claim against their insurance?

    The RICS require their members providing such a service to have professional indemnity insurance and when they stop working to continue with run off insurance for I think six years.
