RPSA welcomes fellow surveyor Mark Prisk as Government's new housing minister7th September 2012

The Residential Property Surveyors Association (RPSA) has welcomed the new housing minister Mark Prisk into his post. The RPSA hopes to work closely with the new Housing Minister over the coming months to ensure consumers are better informed about the survey options available to them, when buying a new home.

Alan Milstein, Chairman of the RPSA said: "We'd like to take this opportunity to welcome Mr Prisk into his new role. A big focus for our organisation, which lobbies for higher residential surveying standards nationally, is to ensure that consumers are better informed about the survey options available to them when purchasing a new home. Too many home buyers are mistakenly led to believe that their lender's valuation is a thorough survey on their future home. As a result, they make their buying decision without access to detailed information about the condition of the property they are about to buy.

"As a chartered surveyor himself, Mr Prisk should be well aware of how buyers are being disadvantaged in this way. "
