Nla Launches New Landlord Accreditation Scheme

Recommended Posts

The National Landlords Association (NLA) has launched a new initiative to enable tenants to check if their landlord is accredited.
The National Register of Accredited Landlords aims to provide a quick and simple look up for tenants to check whether their landlord is accredited and is open to every accredited landlord and accreditation scheme.
NLA chief executive officer Richard Lambert said the organisation wants to raise the profile of accreditation and highlight those who are committed to best practice.
Landlord accreditation is regarded as a way of improving standards and practice in the private rented sector through education and professional development. The NLA currently works with over 65 local councils and five universities across England as their accreditation partner, and the NLA scheme is recognised by another 50 local authorities.

Better than nothing I suppose.

Meh. The NLA is a pro-landlord lobbying organisation, it is not registered with UKAS as an accredited certification body so it cannot issue any accredited qualifications. Calling its unaccredited, online, paid subscription-based course "Landlord Accreditation" is purely a PR exercise, designed to prevent government regulation for the benefit of tenants:

"The NLA promotes and provides accreditation because we believe it is the best way for us to prove, as landlords, that we can self regulate. If we are aware of legislation and our responsibilities and have a way of demonstrating this (NLA Accreditation) we can prove that we do not require further legislation. To demonstrate your accredited status you can use the NLA Accredited Logo."
