AIPP AND THE NATIONAL FEDERATION OF PROPERTY PROFESSIONALS


T


he Association of International Property Professionals (AIPP) was fi rst established in 2006 since when it has aimed to recruit as many international property agents, developers and service providers to its ranks as possible in


order to put itself in a position to improve the market. Our members are listed at the back of this Guide and we believe they represent the companies you should consider dealing with when buying an overseas property. The ambition of the AIPP was given a boost in 20012 when the association ceased to operate as a standalone organisation and became part of the National Federation of Property Professionals, the umbrella organisation for the National Association


of Estate Agents (NAEA), the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA), the Institution of Commercial Business Agents (ICBA) and the National Association of Valuers & Auctioneers (NAVA) with a combined membership of just under 14,000 property professionals.


The over-arching aim of the organisation and its divisions is to promote the highest standards of professionalism and integrity among those working within the property industry, and to encourage members of the public to proactively seek out association members when involved in any kind of property transaction.For more information on the associations within the NFOPP family - which now includes the AIPP - go to www.nfopp.co.uk


The NAEA is the UK’s leading professional body for estate agents. Our main functions include regulating, guiding and assisting property professionals across a wide range of disciplines. We also work to make the housing market safer and easier to use and understand when you are buying a home or selling your house.


The Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA) is a professional membership and regulatory body for letting agents and letting agencies in the UK. ARLA recognised the requirements of the residential lettings market were so detailed and specifi c that a separate organisation was required to promote standards in this important sector of the property industry.

The National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers (NAVA) is a professional self regulating body, soley concerned with Auctioneers and Valuers.

The Association of Professional Inventory Providers (APIP) aims to provide a service for either in-house or independent inventory providers - by offering a recognised standard of inventory provision, provision of advice and guidance and opportunities for professional development.


The Association of International Property Professionals (AIPP), is the industry body for the international property market. A not-for-profi t organisation, the AIPP is providing trade support services and improving professionalism as well as offering published guidance to buyers. In a largely unregulated industry, AIPP Members voluntarily agree to follow a professional Code of Conduct and are bound by our Dispute Resolution Procedures.
