Residential Property Surveyors Association created by a group of surveyors with an ambition to modernise the profession and raise standards throughout the industry.
RPSA recognises a looming crisis due to a surveyor population of practitioners, many of whom were approaching retirement age, and a lack of new entrants being attracted into the residential sector. Working with partners from Building Research Establishment (BRE) and Surveyors & Valuers Accreditation (Sava), RPSA helps coordinate the creation of a new vocational Diploma in Residential Surveying & Valuation, bringing new blood, and a sustainable future, to the industry.
