REGULATED / GLOBAL STANDARDS

RICS / GOVERNANCE

Regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors reinforces the MJ Group's commitment to uphold standards in the property market worldwide and demonstrates the Group's adherence to high professional and ethical standards.

The RICS is an independent professional body originally established in the UK by Royal Charter. Since 1868, it has been committed to setting and upholding the highest standards of excellence and integrity - providing impartial, authoritative advice on key issues affecting businesses and society. Full membership of the RICS is also the world's leading qualification when it comes to professional standards in land, property and construction. Over 100,000 property professionals working in the major established and emerging economies of the world have already recognised the importance of securing RICS status by becoming members.

Our valuation reports are carried out according to the strictest standards of thoroughness, exactness and credibility. Our valuations are based on internationally recognised standards such as the Red Book (RICS - Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) and the Blue Book (TEGoVA The European Group of Valuers' Association). The Red Book sets out the criteria required by the RICS - Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. The Blue Book brings together the European rules and is compiled by TEGoVA - European Group of Valuers' Association, which produces valuation reports for the most varied purposes.

EVA

The European Valuers’ Alliance is composed of Europe’s leading real estate valuation companies, all working together as a network to offer a reliable, consistent valuation service right across the continent.

In total, it includes more than 250 professional valuers, who, during the course of 2017, carried out approximately 50,000 instructions with a total value of over €350 billion.
Our valuers have to meet the highest professional standards to become members, which, in practice, means either being regulated by The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, approved by HypZert (or an equivalent local organisation), or having internal procedures that are ISO9001 compliant.
We also insist that members must have a rigorous control procedure in place to be certain that those standards will be maintained.

8 leading valuation companies

Operating in 11 countries across Europe

More than 250 professionals in over 40 offices

More than 350€ bn of property of all types valued each year

They value all types of property

Eva is a Europe-wide network of commercial and residential real estate valuation specialists, offering the clients leading local professionals in each core European market. This means the clients will enjoy the same level of service and local knowledge right across Europe from perhaps the largest number of specialists in niche sectors on the continent.
