HOW IT WORKS
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors - some thoughts
For Chartered Surveyors it is also the period for ensuring they have logged their compulsory 20 hours of annual CPD (Continuing Professional Development) with the RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) before 31st December. For me it is also the date for payment of my annual Professional Subscriptions (almost £700 as a Fellow).

Perhaps the sector most-structurally impacted by the pandemic has been the office sector, obviously with so many people working from home. We do not think...

We recognise that problems may be exacerbated by the imminent March Quarter Day (25th March) when many businesses will be expected to make the quarterly rent payment in advance.
