Registered Property Receivers Scheme

A distinguished mark of accreditation

The Registered Property Receivers (RPR) scheme was launched in 1999, with the objective of accrediting professionals who carry out fixed charge or Law of Property Act receivership work, in order to offer assurance on professional standards to those making such appointments – as well as other stakeholders such as creditors and the wider public. 

The IPA delivers the scheme working in partnership with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Association of Property and Fixed Charge Receivers (Nara), under a tripartite Memorandum of Understanding. In its role, the IPA carries out Scheme administration and the monitoring and inspection of RPRs. 

Membership of the Scheme is voluntary, and it can only be granted to those who demonstrate the correct level of skill, knowledge and experience to meet the expected standards.  

Scheme members are subject to an ongoing risk-based monitoring regime and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.

There are currently around 200 RPRs registered in the Scheme. Indications are that a number of leading banks will now only consider appointing those who are RPRs. 

For further details, including how to become an RPR or how to find one, visit the Scheme’s dedicated website at  

To ensure that lenders have ready access to, and up-to-date information about, competent and experienced professionals, current members of the Scheme can be viewed on the website.
