For Local Authorities

Landlord accreditation is well on the way to becoming an important industry ‘must-have’ – and not only does it benefit landlords, but tenants and local authorities as well.

Why choose NLA Accreditation?

The NLA provides a central, nationally recognised accreditation scheme, offering a UK-wide signpost of verification to allow responsible landlords to promote their services.

It costs nothing for local authorities to work with us on NLA Accreditation as we look after all the administration including:

  • Course bookings
  • Provision of trainers
  • Handling enquiries

At the NLA, we believe that landlords – like all other professionals – should be recognised for what they know about the sector.

NLA Accreditation is designed to act as a standalone model of accreditation. We’re keen to acknowledge and promote the expertise and commitment that professional landlords demonstrate when it comes to maintaining best practice and high standards of property management.

What are the advantages for local authorities?

Many local authorities are unaware of the ways in which NLA Accreditation can benefit them. In fact, there are a great many ways

There are a number of ways in which NLA Accreditation can benefit local authorities:

  • The NLA charges no fee to participating local authorities for accreditation
  • Increases supply of good quality accommodation in the area
  • Accreditation fosters better relationships between landlords and tenants
  • Our efficient complaints facility reduces the need for local authority intervention
  • Reduces the need for enforcement with our education to meet agreed standards
  • Establishes a national scheme controlled at local level
  • Prevention of rogue operators moving areas with shared information

Are the landlords you're dealing with members of the NLA?

All NLA members have a membership number and a membership identity card.

Our online register of members will allow you to verify that the landlord is a member of the NLA.

Our register of members and National Register of Accredited Landlords will also show whether a landlord has achieved the NLA's Accredited Landlord status, as well as any additional achievements with other major accreditation schemes.
