Valuation and Property Standards

Valuation and Property Standards

The Australia and New Zealand Valuation and Property Standards is a joint publication of the Australian Property Institute (API) and the Property Institute of New Zealand (PINZ).  The API and PINZ have both enjoyed a long and proud history representing property professionals in Australia and New Zealand.

The API is the successor to the Commonwealth Institute of Valuers, formed in 1926. The Property Institute of New Zealand was formerly the New Zealand Institute of Valuers, established in 1942. The two Institutes today represent the interests of more than 11,000 property specialists throughout Australia and New Zealand.

The joint release of these Property Standards by the API and PINZ reflects the strong working relationship between these Institutes. 

The API recognises its role as guardians of the status and standing of the property profession and of its duty to protect and further the public interest.  The API also acknowledge that the privileges accorded to professional persons by the community are accompanied by responsibilities to client and community, which cannot be waived.
