IRPM – Institute of Residential Property Management

The Institute is a self-governing body funded by membership contributions and other revenue deriving from its activities.

The IRPM was launched in early 2002 as a means of delivering a portable professional qualification in residential property management, available to anyone working in the sector, and one which would be accepted by all those operating within it. The Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA,) Association of Retirement Housing Managers (ARHM) and the Property Managers Association Scotland (PMAS) were founding sponsors in 2002.
The Institute’s aim is to meet the following objectives:-
  • Raise standards in this professional sector
  • Provide individuals with independent accreditation as to their professional skills
  • Provide a career development path for individuals
  • Aid in the process of recruiting new entrants to the sector
  • Assist practitioners in assessing job applicant capabilities
  • Provide opportunities for Continuing Professional Development
  • And generally improve the standing of the sector in the eyes of the public
The Institute was formally inaugurated in January 2002 with a defined Constitution and Rules, underpinned by a Code of Professional Conduct. It has a hierarchy of membership grades based on defined criteria. These grades are Fellow, Member, Associate and Affiliate.

APIP – Association of Professional Inventory Providers

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, advice and guidance and opportunities for professional development.

APIP offers inventory providers the opportunity to have their professionalism recognised by the use of post-nominals (e.g. A N Other MAPIP) and the APIP logo; and to promote their service via the APIP website.
APIP also provides landlords, property management agents and tenants with the names of and access to accredited inventory providers, with the reassurance that an APIP member meets professional standards, is fully insured and follows the APIP Code of Practice.

ARLA – Association of Residential Letting Agents

By using a Licensed ARLA agent you are guaranteed:
  • That the agency is covered by our Client Money Protection (CMP) Scheme.
  • That the agency has Professional Indemnity Insurance.
  • To be consulting with a qualified and trained agent who can give you professional up-to-date advice and guidance.
  • That you are dealing with an agent who voluntarily follows the Code of Practice and Rules of Conduct laid down by their professional body.
  • That you have a route to redress should something go wrong.
