Get the most out of your foreign property
Our purpose is to optimise your pleasure in using your foreign property over many years. We offer owners inspiration, support & the opportunity to save money, all currently funded by the international property industry & our partners.
Whether your property is freehold, leasehold or timeshare, British-resident owners all share the same issues associated with travel, access, currency & protection. In practical terms, this means everything from: getting to an airport or ferry / train, the terminal experience, possibly a stay at a local hotel, changing currency, possible visa requirements, the transit experience, local car hire, travel and property insurance, property maintenance and legal matters. We are here to help.
Representing & Resolving Members Issues
The Alliance acts as a hub to collate any issues you have and to potentially help resolve them. Making representation, on your behalf, to authorities and governments may be required several times over the lifetime of your foreign property ownership. BREXIT being an immediate issue at hand. The Alliance is a member of the Tourism Alliance, along with the likes of ABTA, the CBI and The European Holiday Home Association. Through the Tourism Alliance we can access UK MP’s and the Lords, key government departments and the EU. If required, The Alliance may seek to crowdfund a collective budget with which to further key representation, lobbying or legal issues on owners behalf.
1. Knowledge & Support
There are several expert-written, impartial guides free to download, with more being added all the time.
Unlike some companies, we do not ask that you give us your personal details to sell onto 3rd parties.
It can be difficult to know how to address a negative matter affecting your property in a foreign country, so the AIPP legal working group is here to help with free advice in plain English. The AIPP legal members are expert in most aspects likely to affect you and, if they don't know the answer, they know where to go to find it.
We will be regularly offering valuable information via our newsletter, blog and social media, so sign-up through your medium of choice. Its completely free of charge during our launch phase.
2. Inspiration, Savings & Offers
We are not just here to help cut the cost of owning your foreign property, we will bring you inspiration, savings & offers associated with accessing & using your property.
We launched this website in April 2018 and are currently working with a number of partners, behind the scenes, to bring you some cracking ideas & offers soon.
Areas currently under investigation include; getting to the airport, your airport experience, flights, ferry & trains, car hire, currency exchange, technology & surveillance, home automation, rental-proofing furniture, tax & wealth management, amongst others.
Become a member of the Alliance to make sure you receive all the details, as we add them.
Our first Alliance member offer is already available for those joining us before the end of July - a free 12 month membership to the Luxury Restaurant Club for use in the UK at over 500 prestigious restaurants nationwide (worth £105).
British-resident buyers & owners of a foreign property are a large, yet unconnected, group leading busy lives who would rather not worry about how external affairs might impact their enjoyment of their foreign property.
So our 'representation' works in two ways;
1. We will keep you updated on issues arising that might impact you in the country you own a property and, if required, lobby on your behalf for remedy. We do need your tacit endorsement to do this work for you and all you need do is become a member of the Alliance - its free of charge and without obligation during our initial launch phase.
2. We will occasionally send you short online survey's to ask what is on your mind and to collate all members thoughts for potential action on your behalf.
If there are significant issues at hand, perhaps caused by BREXIT, for example, then we might make a crowdfunding request from members to raise funds to support a legal challenge on your behalf. Without the Alliance to give a focal point for such activity and to potentially share the cost amongst home owners, this would be unlikely to happen.
4. Community hub
Share questions, tips, stories & ideas with fellow owners via our social platforms, community and forum - receive the 'wisdom of the crowd' to help guide & inspire you.
Pose questions to expert AIPP members and get all the information you need to make informed choices.
