Cumbria Landlords Accreditation Scheme (CLAS)
This scheme, launched in May 2014, is our national NLA Accreditation scheme, supported by and in partnership with five district councils in Cumbria. The five participating district councils; Eden District Council, Carlisle City Council, South Lakeland District Council, Barrow Borough Council and Allerdale Borough Council, have agreed to work in partnership with the NLA to encourage local landlords to sign up.
This is the start of a joint relationship which aims to bring professional practice to the private rented sector, and to help tackle rogue landlords. Joining the scheme will provide many of the NLA national membership benefits, plus with CLAS, the ability to advertise accommodation through the University of Cumbria, along with other localised benefits as determined by each of the five participating councils.
