    Goals / remit

The International Union of Property Owners – Union Internationale de la Propriété Immobilière A.S.B.L. (UIPI) is the leading organisation for individual owners and private landlords in Europe.

Founded in 1923 in Paris, the UIPI is an international not-for-profit association. With 30 member organisations, the UIPI represents more than 5 million property owners in 28 countries across Europe.

The property owners represented by the UIPI range from individual home owners, private landlords with a single bedroom flat or multiple-occupancy houses, to landlords with large property portfolios in the private-rented and commercial sectors. The UIPI also supports dispossessed property owners in former communist countries.

The mission of the UIPI is to protect and promote the interests, needs and concerns of home owners and landlords at national, European and international levels.

Based in Brussels, the UIPI makes representations on behalf of its members to the institutions of the EU. It monitors developments at the EU level and participate in the EU debate for those areas of EU legislation and policy that have an impact on real estate, the building sector, the private-rented sector and property rights. The UIPI also seeks to influence events affecting the property sector in an increasing number of international bodies.

The UIPI continuously promotes solidarity, cooperation and exchange of information between associations of property owners.

UIPI recently published a report called Landlords in Europe (a comparative analysis that looks at the private rented market in Europe from a practitioner‘s point of view; bringing together details on the rental laws, tax regimes and planning policies which govern the private rented sector in twelve case study countries across Europe).

UIPI regularly publishes comparative studies on real estate taxation in EU member states.

UIPI organises annually a "Property Day", an event dedicated to issues relevant for property owners.

UIPI holds a biennial Congress.
