The Worshipful Company of Chartered Surveyors is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. The organisation was granted Letters Patent in May 1977. The Company promotes surveying by awarding scholarships.
The Company ranks eighty-fifth in the order of precedence for Livery Companies. Its motto is Modus ab initio, which is Latin for "Method from the very beginning". The landscape painter Richard Howard Penton's drawings in Halls of the Livery Companies of the City of London were re-published in 1981 to mark their grant of livery status.
