The British Property Federation is the voice of the real estate industry in the UK. We represent all those active in real estate in the UK – owners, developers, funders, agents and advisers. 

We work with our members to support a diverse, successful and sustainable real estate industry recognised for the contribution it makes to society. Because our membership is industry wide, we provide unparalleled opportunities for networking and sharing good practice, and we can provide government and regulators with an authoritative perspective on the issues facing real estate and how we can support communities across the country.   

We deliver our mission by working collaboratively with national and local government and other partners; by promoting knowledge, innovation and best practice within the industry; and by showcasing our members’ achievements so that our diverse sector is better understood.
