The British Property Federation is a membership organisation devoted to representing the interests of all those involved in real estate ownership and investment.
We aim to create the conditions in which the real estate industry can grow and thrive, for the benefit of our members and of the economy as a whole.
Because our membership includes the biggest companies in the real estate industry - property developers and owners, institutions, fund managers, investment banks and professional organisations that support the industry - we are able to provide the knowledge and expertise needed by legislators (the UK and Scottish governments) and regulators (including various financial, planning and environmental bodies) in taking their decisions.
Our members can help the government deliver many of its policies, particularly those involving urban regeneration, sustainable communities, social inclusion, tax-efficient property investment, savings and pensions reform, carbon reduction and environmental improvement.
We have three objectives:
to raise the profile of the real estate industry with political stakeholders, the media, and the public
to improve legislative, fiscal and regulatory conditions that affect our industry and so enhance the benefits the industry can bring to the UK
to encourage best practice within the industry as a means of increasing long term value and improving stakeholder perception.
In Scotland, we operate as the Scottish Property Federation, with an office in Edinburgh.
