Merrifields rated as Good by RICS
As part of RICS’ obligation to conduct ongoing monitoring, and following a recent Regulatory Review Visit by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Merrifields have been rated for its compliance with the Designated Professional Body (DPB) rules as ‘Good’.
The primary purpose of the visit was to establish that any General Insurance Mediation Activities being undertaken are compliant with the RICS DPB scheme. The regulatory review visit also took the opportunity to assess the firms operations in connection with the RICS’ Rules of Conduct, a preliminary review of the firm’s activity in relation to Client Money accounting procedures, and associated standard and relevant legislation.
The common objective is to maintain and improve the service and information given to clients and the protection of the public.
William Dunkerley, Commercial Property Manger, comments “The team at Merrifields is pleased to have received the RICS "Good" grading, and are pleased that the Professional Assurance Team at the RICS found our policies and procedures to be effectively implemented and robust. We have put in place a few recommended measures and we aim for an Outstanding grading next time. ”
