Join the Society of Property Researchers

The Society of Property Researchers (SPR) has a membership of over 500 individuals working in a variety of organisations; from surveying firms to independent research companies, from academics to institutions. The majority are based in the UK, but a growing number are working overseas. SPR offers its members the opportunity to network, keep abreast of current trends and update skills.

The membership is individual* rather than corporate, and the subscription rate (currently £50 for UK and Europe) is set at the AGM in early November. The membership year runs from November to October, and there is no discounted rate for joining during the year, except for those approved in September and October. There is a reduced rate for both students and unwaged, (£5) and a discount for those members working outside continental Europe (£20). Members moving jobs during the year take their membership with them, rather than it staying within their initial organisation.

Applicants must be involved with property research and are requested to give two current SPR members as sponsors or submit a CV of their property research experience.  Students in a relevant subject can join and only need to provide their lecturer/professor as a referee.  The committee’s decision regarding applications is final.

Individuals working within property but not directly involved with research may apply to the committee for an affiliate membership. Priced at £80 per annum, this discretionary membership allows SPR affiliates access to event slides packs, networking events such as our annual summer drinks and up to 3 technical events per year such as seminars and site visits. Applications are considered by the current SPR committee but individuals involved in direct sales roles will not be accepted. 

* members paying their own subscription should be aware that the cost is tax deductible.  For further details, click on
