“Welcome to the first of the Chester Association of Property Professionals (aka CAPP) monthly articles”


Going forward each month a CAPP member company will provide an article which could cover what is going on in the market locally, or perhaps an article concerning a significant change to the property industry for example.


This month we thought that we should start by telling you a bit about CAPP. What is the CAPP? Well, it is now in its 72nd year and until the name change in recent times, was formerly called the Chester Association of Auctioneers, Estate Agents, Surveyors and Valuers.


Companies wishing to become a member of CAPP must comply with the requirements of CAPP’s constitution; all applications for CAPP membership, or a member company’s removal from membership, would be decided by CAPP’s Committee.


The objects of the Association are to encourage and foster a feeling of unity and harmony amongst its members, to promote and protect the interests of the profession, to provide an element of continuing professional development, and to maintain and extend its usefulness to the mutual advantage of the public and the profession.


To be a member of CAPP the applicant must be “a business providing property inspection and measurement, valuation, sales and lettings agency, management, construction, maintenance, planning, project management, architecture and other surveying and appraisal related professional services within the Chester area”.
