1.0 Introduction

  • 1.1 Purpose

    • The purpose of this Client Focus element is to inform existing and potential clients of API & PINZ Members of the broad range of services Members can provide.
  • 1.2 Property is Diverse

    • It is easy to think of property as real estate alone, yet there are many different classes of property.
    • Property in a broad sense is anything which can be owned or in which an interest can be held, over which some control can be exercised, which can be traded or left in an estate or from which current or future rights to receive benefits can be held. Property can include, but is not limited to, real estate and associated interests therein, personal property, intellectual property, rights, licences and options, plant and machinery, art and jewellery, goodwill and shares. While the majority of Member activities are related to real estate and plant and machinery, the other areas are attracting some specialist focus.
