There is no general statutory regulation of, or restriction upon qualification and practice as, a valuer or surveyor1, but most valuers and surveyors are members of one or more of a number of professional organisations, in particular the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors2. Members of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers3 and of the Institute of Revenues, Rating and Valuation are frequently concerned with valuations of land for specific purposes4.
