About Us

NAEA Propertymark protects and guides consumers, helping people to buy and sell their treasured homes. We work to raise professional standards among estate agents from single branch independents to large national groups, promoting education and qualifications within the sector. More than 10,500 estate agent offices are NAEA Propertymark Protected, all meeting higher standards than the law demands and through this we offer greater protection to consumers.

Propertymark logo

Propertymark launched in February 2017 combining ARLA, NAEA, NAVA, ICBA, APIP and NFoPP Awarding Body into a single brand in order to achieve a greater consumer awareness.

We aim to reassure all of those buying and selling property that estate agents who display the Propertymark Protected logo offer better protection for their clients: Client Money Protection, Professional Indemnity insurance, membership of an independent redress scheme. Members are also subject to Propertymark Conduct and Membership Rules and disciplinary procedures with sanctions for those who fall below the expected standards. Anyone using an agent displaying the Propertymark Protected logo will be confident that their agent is guiding them on their property journey.
