The profession of Estate Surveying and Valuation provides equal opportunity to both male and female to become professionals. However, recent data garnered from Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV) showed that 5,111 persons have been groomed as Professionals (Associates of the Institution) after over forty (40) years of the existence of the institution. It is worrisome to know that the ratio of associate inductees (new professional members with NIESV) to the Nigerian population is 1:38,309. The study sought to examine the factors responsible for delay, abandonment of the professional registration process which has culminated in low numerical strength of Professionals (Associate Members) of NIESV. The six main group of factors (which are situational, institutional, dispositional, academic, employment related and gender related factors) identified from literature were introduced into the questionnaire, designed in Likert scale and used to obtain the respondents’ perception on the issue of attrition in the registration process. The responses of members pursuing professional membership with NIESV was gathered during their professional interview in Ikeja, Lagos and analyzed using descriptive statistics such as simple distribution frequency and mean weighted score. The result showed that situational and gender related factors such as health challenges, unequal pay between males and females, insufficient recognition of professional knowledge and skill for females, having a physical/mental disability amongst others were found to be significant to the issue of attrition in estate surveying and valuation professional registration process. The study recommended that new strategies that will combat the attrition issue in the registration process be developed.
