Bulgarian Dreams Expelled from AIPP

It will come as a bit of a shock to those who have had dealings with Bulgarian Dreams that they have been officially expelled from AIPP (the UK based Association of International Property Professionals).

There is no specific reason given for the expulsion except that the "Tribunal finds that the conduct of Bulgarian Dreams in this regard fell way short of the ambits that should be expected."

This decision by the AIPP would have to call into question the value of the company's two Bentley awards, awarded in 2005 and 2006. These awards are renowned within the industry for being given to International Homes Magazine's largest advertisers to thank them for their custom over the year, but that's a rant for another blog thread.

News on the grapevine suggest that the company's owner, Robert Jenkin, has gone to ground and is completely uncontactable. Someone within the industry in
Bulgaria cited the company as a perfect example of "an agent who became a developer without sufficient knowledge and is now suffering the consequences."

All reference to AIPP seems to have been removed from the company's site but it still claims to be a member of the EEAU (European Estate Agent's
Union). The link to this entity's site ( currently only leads to an error page.

If you have had dealings with Bulgarian Dreams we strongly recommend that you get in contact with the company to query your current status or contact AIPP to examine your options at this stage.
