  • EXPERT

    Surveyors typically specialise in real estate where they are split into five main categories – Rural Surveyors, who will specialise in farm land, agriculture and energy projects, Commercial Surveyors who deal with Offices, Shops, Warehouses, Hotels, Hospitals etc, Residential Surveyors who work with houses and flats, Quantity Surveyors who provide building material and cost estimates and then Building Surveyors who typically deal with building defects, construction and project management. Outside of real estate, you’ll also find surveyors working in measurement and the appraisal and assessment of fine arts and antiquities, although these categories are generally more niche.

    Within each of those main categories, surveyors will specialise in a particular area. For example, you may have one commercial surveyor who specialises in Office Agency, while another may specialise in Valuation work.

    Real Estate investors will typically work with either a rural, commercial or residential surveyor, depending on what sort of asset they wish to invest in.
