If you fall under any of these categories, or are a surveyor in a different profession, such as topographical or quantity surveyors, you might consider purchasing surveyors insurance to protect yourself against claims, allegations, theft and damage.
An insurance policy for property, land or any other type of surveyor will be tailored to provide financial protection against the risks they face relating to their premises, customers, employees, equipment and tools. All chartered surveyors in the UK are members of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), so will be legally required to purchase professional indemnity insurance (PII) in order to operate legitimately.

Some professional bodies also specify the level and quality of cover that needs to be purchased. Surveyors operating outside of professional bodies will likely find that standard surveyors insurance policies are nonetheless similar to those offered for chartered surveyors, from which they can then choose options for further protection.
