National Landlords Association
National Landlords Association Accreditation recognises reputable landlords/agents who provide their tenants with high quality and safe accommodation. Using a NLA landlord should provide you with a positive experience of letting a property.
Before the NLA 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
You can access the code of practice online and search for an accredited landlord on the National Landlords Association’s website.
