About Us

Building confidence in international property

By promoting the highest standards of professionalism in the international property industry, the Association of International Property Professionals (AIPP) has been set up to provide the consumer with confidence, and the industry professionals with a united voice.

We do not sell property. We are a not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to improve the standards of professionalism in the international property market, helping both the industry and the public.

Thousands of people are buying overseas property: for holidays, for living or for investment. The AIPP provides a set of standards for those companies selling international property and is working to ensure that the public understands what it means when they see the AIPP Member logo on company literature.

AIPP Members have voluntarily signed up to follow the AIPP Code of Conduct, a code established to help consumers by showing where they will find professional, accountable 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 the dealings with the public and with the industry. For full details of the Code of Conduct and the AIPP Disciplinary Procedure, to which all Members have also agreed to be bound should the code not be followed, click on the highlighted links.

There is a full list of Members on this website; you can search by company name, membership number or simply view the full list.

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.
