NLA self-regulation scheme for landlords set up

A self-regulation scheme for landlords set up by the National Landlords Association (NLA) is proving a success, with 28 local authorities now signed up.

The NLA Accreditation Scheme is used to help private landlords be self-regulated, which means keeping up with the most up to date legislation.

More than 85 per cent of the landlords that have signed up so far have described the programme as excellent.

NLA chairman David Salusbury commented: "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."

He added that the initiative gives landlords the chance to show that they understand not only their landlord obligations, but also the extensive legislation that governs their day to day operations.
