The RICS Residential Property Conference provides key insights into navigating policy, economic and technological shifts within the residential property sector.

The programme addresses key topics across survey and valuation, property management, technology within the sector, and takes a look at housing projects in action. The sessions will be looking into the future of residential property and what we need to know now to keep up to date with the future state of the sector. 

Some of the key highlights include:

  • Future of home buying – gain insight into the future of the home buying process, hear updates from the Home Survey Standard and what the new changes mean for the sector.  This session will analyse the state of the home buying market and address how new changes will impact stakeholders.
  • Latest technologies in the sector – learn what changes have arrived and what is to come from PropTech companies leading the wave of disruptive technologies. Surveyors and property managers will learn how such change will affect the way they operate.
  • Future of regulation within the residential sector – hear from Lord Richard Best, Chair of the MHCLG’s Regulation of Property Agents Working Group.
  • Join a discussion during the CEO panel, consider industry challenges, how the sector should be regulated and how diversity and inclusion in the profession can be improved.

Attend this conference to hear from agents, surveyors, valuers, block and property managers to ensure you are up to speed when it comes to tackling the biggest issues facing the residential property sector.
