    IRPM membership - con or benefit

    IRPM - I am thinking of joining but there is almost no information regarding the study commitment. I have been advised by IRPM I must pay £129 membership, £75 Admin, £380 for the Membership exam, £195 for the Membership exam workshop. There is no syllabus, no study materials, no advice on the time commitment that may be necessary or to advise the areas that will be tested. I have 10 years experience in the industry both management and accounting and I would like to take this step but £800 for entry to a membership without any information seems a bit steep. Does anyone have any advice? Is this as unreasonable as it sounds?

      |What benefits of an IPRM qualification confer on OP?
      Are the stated costs worth it?

          The IRPM is the Institute for Residential Property Management. "2 Qs OP could have determined before seeking advice of this Forum." Sadly this doesn't enlighten at all. What is the study commitment? What knowledge of what areas are examined in the exam? Where can I get a "syllabus" so that I can revise and make certain my investment pays off. What benefits have you derived?

            Apologies I forgot to mention none of this information is available on the website ... thank you for the link. Nor is this available by phone.

              I've never heard of the organisation, and (consequently) don't see any advantage in being a member.
              When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
              Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

                I have had a house fully managed by a letting agent for 10 years, its on a periodic STA the tenancy agreement has a guarantor. The agents have made a lot of mistakes they asked me if I would do another tenancy agreement as the tenants wife has left. I said that I wouldn't when they told me that he...

                No. Just write a letter yourself.

                Without seeing your agreement with the agency it’s impossible to say for sure where you stand.

                However, if the property is now empty then it’s pretty likely that your agreement with them is over, it’s unusual for an agent’s service to you to extend beyond the end of a tenancy (because...

                Thank you for your reply, I will put them on notice. Does this need to be done by a solicitor ?

                Not really. I would put them on notice that if tenant defaults on the rent, you will hold the agent responsible for any shortfall.

                Hello,


                I was in an internship in London (remunerate. I think it is important saying it)), and the agency which rented me the room didn´t protected my deposit (802 pounds). I was in Fulham.

                They say in the agreement i have a "permission of occupation" so they...

                That's not 100% guaranteed, but it is very likely that you had a tenancy, regardless of what the agreement actually said.
