The API represents the interests of more than 7,500 property professionals throughout Australia. The API members include residential, commercial valuers, property advisers, property analysts, property fund and asset managers, property facility managers, property lawyers and property researchers and academics.
The Institute’s main role is to set and maintain the highest standards of professional practice, education, ethics and professional conduct for it members and the broader property profession.
The API is committed to building and maintaining a strong base for the future of the property profession through broadening the expertise and knowledge of membership.
The Institute is highly regarded and respected throughout Australia and in some states government regulations specify that property professionals must belong to a member association such as the API. Many leading Australian financial institutions also require property professionals who carry out mortgage valuation work to be members of the API.
The Institute produces a range of leading property publications, including the Australian Property Journal, and other professional and educational texts, such as the Professional Practice Manual and Valuation Principles and Practices. The Institute also develops software packages, such as PropertyPro which provides a Performa template for residential mortgage valuation work. This Performa is the preferred format for the majority of Australia’s leading financial institutions.

CPV Ethics and Standards
CPVs hold a unique position in the property industry, being true professionals in the field of valuation. In order for them to keep that position, it is vital to maintain certain principles and values, and behave in a manner expected of Members of the Institute.
CPVs should always work in a professional manner, with integrity and honour. They should serve their clients and employers in good faith, acting impartially and objectively when providing independent advice. It is important to always respect the public interest.
CPVs should only take on work for which they have the competence, skill and/or experience to complete it to acceptable professional standards. If they are not able to complete the project themselves, they should work in conjunction with a suitably qualified and experienced practitioner to do so.
Any conflicts of interest should be identified and considered before a project is taken on. Members should not act in a matter in which a conflict or potential conflict has been identified, unless all interested parties have been made aware of the situation and agree to the Member continuing with the task.
It’s important for Members to observe confidentiality requirements when working with clients and the public. Members should always conduct their business in a manner befitting their profession, and in accordance with reasonable public expectations of any professional workers.
