A commercial/residential surveyor deals with all aspects of residential and/or commercial property in both the private and public sectors.
Principal activities are related to the management, purchase, sale, or leasing of land and property, as well as valuing and surveying property. The surveyor may act as an agent, broker or auctioneer during a sale and may also carry out contract negotiations between landlords and tenants.
Commercial/residential surveyors may specialise in development, investments, planning or consultancy. Consultants may work in private practice, for a local authority or other public sector organisation or they may be self-employed.
