Valuers will be aware that theirs is one of the professional activities that carries a high risk of being sued if they get it wrong. Even though the wave of largely speculative claims that followed the last financial crisis has subsided, when did you last review your practices to make sure that you are keeping the risks you take to a minimum? 

This half day seminar gives you the opportunity to hear from and question experts on current concerns in the insurance market, recent legal developments and the latest RICS guidance on managing valuation risk. It will also look at some of the risks the market itself creates.
