The National Landlords Association (NLA) has launched its national roll out of the NLA Accreditation.
The landlord body claims that 73 local authorities from across the United Kingdom have expressed a strong interest in moving forward with NLA Accreditation.
NLA Accreditation works with local councils to provide up-to-date information and support to landlords in their area.
NLA Accreditation, which is free for local authorities to participate in, offers a structured approach to landlord development by utilising online and face-to-face courses.
With the six month pilot with five local authorities completed, unprecedented demand from other local councils means the NLA has brought forward its national launch.
Richard Price, director of operations, NLA, said: “Accreditation offers a way to recognise quality standards of management in the private-rented sector. It provides landlords with the skills to provide the best possible service to their tenants. NLA Accreditation is a mark of excellence in which both councils and tenants can put their trust.”””
