AIPP: Association of International Property Professionals
Welcome to the website of the Association of International Property Professionals (AIPP).
AIPP is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation seeking to improve standards of professionalism in the largely unregulated international property industry.
AIPP is also a Trustee of the IESC – International Ethics & Standards Coalition – www.ies-coalition.org
Important note about the service provided by the AIPP
We provide free and impartial information to UK citizens about buying a foreign property. The AIPP does not sell property, but it is an association made up of property sellers & associated companies who voluntarily subscribe to the AIPP code of conduct. The AIPP does not underwrite the business activities of its members. AIPP does monitor and enforce its code of conduct and does, from time to time, take disciplinary proceedings against members that may lead to their sanction – but expulsion from the AIPP is the ultimate sanction we can impose. In common with other trade organisations, the AIPP does not underwrite for the benefit of members of the public any shortcomings or negligent acts by its members.
That said, AIPP members are also subscribed to the independent and specialist The Property Ombudsman service. Members of the public can, at no cost to themselves, make a complaint about an AIPP member which, if upheld by The Property Ombudsman, could lead to an award of compensation being made to the complainant of up to £25,000 – such an award being payable by the AIPP member.
