AIPP Guide to Buying Overseas Property Safely
October 7th, 2009
The Association of International Property Professionals (AIPP) has released the 4th edition of its annual guide, Buying Overseas Property Safely – The Consumer Guide from the Industry Body.
As the step-by-step manual of how to avoid common pitfalls and buy overseas safely, it’s become the Green Cross Code of the international property market.
It provides consumers with independent and expert advice with features such as 5 common pitfalls and how to avoid them and 10 questions to ask your agent.
It also explains who buyers will need to hold their hand through the process, from agents and developers to lawyers, foreign exchange specialists and financial advisers.
The 64-page publication also includes a full list of AIPP Members, all signed up to follow the industry’s professional Code of Conduct, along with information for consumers on how the AIPP can help them.
“In a largely unregulated sector, our sole aim is to make the international property market a safer place in which to buy property,” explains Paul Owen, Chief Executive of the Association
