APIP becomes Property Mark
In 2017 a new 'seal of approval' for the property industry has been launched and it's called 'Property Mark'. The launch from NAEA and ARLA aims to create a recognised identity instead of the unknown NFOPP.
Members will now display a new Property Mark logo. For Inventory companies this means the previous APIP Accreditation logo will also be replaced by the ARLA Property Mark logo.
David Cox, ARLA Propertymark chief executive said this;
“At present, customers don’t know where to go for advice or can’t be sure if they are dealing with a professional. We are changing this.
“We will reach out to customers directly so they recognise Propertymark and understand that by using a Propertymark Protected agent they and their money are safe.
“Propertymark is a stamp of approval for consumers when they seek professional property expertise in buying, selling, renting, leasing or valuing a property.
“It stands for protection for the consumer, and offers the highest standards and qualifications among property professionals.
“Propertymark Protected agents have opted for regulation in an unregulated sector, and provide reassurance for consumers as well as protection against rogue operators.”
