The National Landlords Association (NLA), Accreditation Scheme for private landlords is now being used by 28 local authorities across the UK, only a year after the initial launch.
The NLA Accreditation Scheme is free to local authorities and was launched by the National Landlords Association in April 2010.
The scheme provides local authorities with the means for compliant landlords to self-regulate and keep up-to-date with best practice and legislation.
This frees up vital local authority resources to tackle rogue landlords.
Over 85% of landlords who have completed the Scheme to date have described it as ‘excellent’.
NLA Chairman David Salusbury said “The NLA Accreditation Scheme provides local government with a valuable vehicle to raise standards within the private-rented sector and local authorities are now waking up to its potential. The NLA Scheme provides landlords with a clear way of demonstrating that they are professional by understanding their obligations, as well as the extensive legislation governing the letting of private residential property. The fact landlords can become accredited through the NLA’s Scheme without cost to the public purse is an obvious benefit. We’re very pleased with the feedback from participating landlords; with 85% of those completing the scheme describing it as ‘excellent’. These individual landlords will now be able to promote that fact that they are accredited by the NLA.”
