Midland Landlord Accreditation Scheme

The Midland Landlord Accreditation Scheme recognises reputable landlords/agents who provide their tenants with high quality and safe accommodation. Using an MLAS landlord should provide you with a positive experience of letting a property

Before we will accredit a landlord, they must attend a one-day seminar to learn about best practice for landlords, housing legislation, and what is expected of them. They must also sign a legal declaration to say they are a ‘fit and proper person‘ to be a landlord. Finally, they must sign a code of conduct that commits them to:

  • act in a fair and reasonable way and to respect the rights of tenants to peaceful and quiet enjoyment of the property
  • give tenants 24 hours‘ notice when access to the property is required
  • provide tenants with a tenancy agreement, inventory, details of how the deposit will be managed, and contact information for the landlord
  • not harass tenants
  • ensure all accommodation is in a reasonable state of repair and has adequate fire safety amenities
  • attend to repairs and defects promptly

Midland Landlord Accreditation Scheme’s website has useful resources, including the full code of conduct and statement of a fit and proper person. This also includes the agent accreditation policy which details additional standards agents must meet. You can also see a list of accredited landlords, including their unique accreditation number and a list of accredited agents. These lists also show landlords/agents who have had their accreditation removed or who are suspended.
