About IRPM

Your passport to professionalism in property management

The Institute of Residential Property Management (IRPM) is the leading professional body for residential property management professionals, providing learning and qualifications to over 4,900 members from over 1,200 organisations, who serve the private, social, build-to-rent and retirement sectors, managing estates and developments across all tenures.

It is estimated, for example, that well over half of all leasehold properties in the UK are managed by our qualified professionals, contributing to a marked improvement in management standards since our inception in 2002.

IRPM’s mission is to raise standards in the management of residential property in the UK and provide individuals with independent professional accreditation. IRPM is not a trade body and does not represent firms. It does not lobby, but instead is an authoritative and trusted voice with Government and stakeholders as an unbiased speaker of truth to power.

The Institute’s key objectives are to:

  • Raise standards in the residential property management sector
  • Provide individuals with independent accreditation of their professional skills
  • Assist practitioners in assessing job applicant capabilities

The Institute has a defined Constitution and Rules, underpinned by a Code of Professional Conduct. It has a hierarchy of membership levels based on defined criteria. Membership levels are Affiliate, Associate, Member & Fellow.
