    Course information

    Residential property plays a vitally important role in society. In addition to its primary purpose of meeting the housing requirements of the population it is also a growing investment asset class.

    Given the importance of housing in society, it is essential that the market is supported by qualified professionals who can ensure the industry operates smoothly and in line with recognized standards of practice.

    In this course, we will cover the core skills required by residential chartered surveyors, focussing on core competencies identified by RICS’ industry expertise. This includes the principles and best practice related to measurement, inspection, residential property management, building defects, lan­­­dlord and tenant issues, leasing and letting, purchase and sale or property, maintenance and housing strategy and provision.

    The course will last seven months and will use a combination of online learning tools and case studies to support the learning, and will be extremely valuable to those looking to gain full MRICS membership or to gain fundamental skills required to work in the residential property market.
