Terra Caribbean is now regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS); a world-renowned and respected professional body that monitors, guides and assists firms to comply with rules, regulations and ethical standards.

Our company attained this prestigious designation at the end of May, and now proudly carry the ‘regulated by RICS’ designation on business letterheads and advertising.


Andrew Mallalieu, an RICS member since 2006 and our Chief Executive, spoke proudly about having his firm regulated by RICS, “This is quite an accomplishment for Terra Caribbean and I am pleased to be associated with RICS; one of the leading organisations of its kind in the world. Attaining RICS status is the recognised mark of property professionalism, and in today’s world where individuals and organizations demand greater transparency and certainty with regards to standards and values, RICS regulation can ensure clients receive clear, impartial and expert advice from us as qualified professionals.”

Speaking on the benefits of this regulation for the company and its clients, Chief Operating Officer and RICS member, Hayden Hutton explained, “The validation that comes along with the RICS logo and the ‘Regulated by RICS’ status quo clearly illustrates Terra Caribbean’s commitment to a strict code of conduct that will be reflected in every aspect of our business. Under the RICS regulation, firm members and staff regularly update their skills and knowledge to ensure our clients receive the best possible service.”

“We are very pleased that Terra Caribbean has registered as an RICS Regulated Firm”, added Michael Zuriff, Manager of Regulation for RICS in the Americas. “In doing this, Terra Caribbean is showing a commitment to the highest professional and ethical standards as well as an independent monitoring process that assures the quality of the real estate services they provide”. 

By following the RICS rules of conduct, Terra Caribbean can provide further confidence and reassurance to their clients that they have adopted the highest standards of professional business. So whenever you see ‘Regulated by RICS’ on any Terra Caribbean branded materials, you will know that you are not only engaging a firm that is providing the service you need, but also one that is regulated by a world renowned and respected professional body.
