Property professionals are those who have a profession within the property industry, whether it is in the UK or overseas. In order to understand and be sure you are getting the right professionals for your project requirements, a path has been created toward building confidence in international property. This has been successfully fulfilled by promoting high standards of professionalism in particular in the overseas property industry. ‘The Association of International Property Professionals’ (AIPP) was set up so that provisions for the consumer confidence could be attained, and that the industry of professionals were granted a united voice.
What Responsibilities The AIPP Undertake:
The Association of International Property Professionals do not sell property. Being a non-profit organisation they rely on their main objective which is to improve the standards of professionalism in the international property market; thus, helping the industry and the public.
The formulae the AIPP go by are listed below:
• Thousands of people are buying overseas property: for holidays, for living or for investment.
• Millions are spent each year on overseas property, in Europe, in America, in Asia and beyond.
• Consumers are left at the mercy of their own research into companies, their history, their service, their reliability.
• Now that can change.
The AIPP will set the standards in this industry, they will most certainly work hard to improve the service to the consumer and ensure the public understands what it means when they see the AIPP Member logo on company literature.
The AIPP Members have voluntarily signed up to follow the AIPP Code of Conduct, the code helps consumers by showing where they will find professional companies; it is an illustration of each Member’s commitment to high standards in their work.
Members must act with honesty, transparency and integrity in all their dealings with the public and also with the industry.
