An accreditation scheme is intended to assist in the strategic objective of raising the status and standards within the private rented sector market within East Ayrshire. It is a voluntary process and compliments the registration process.

An accreditation scheme aims to raise standards and recognise good practice.

The main aims of an accreditation scheme are:

  • to give recognition to private landlords that meet a required standard of service delivery
  • to give tenants a guide when selecting a private landlord
  • to develop and improve the housing sector as a whole

Landlord Accreditation Scotland (LAS) is the national accreditation scheme for Scottish landlords and letting agents, promoting best practice in the private rented sector by offering training and education across the country.

LAS was launched in 2008 in partnership with Scottish Association of Landlords (SAL), Scottish Land and Estates and the Scottish Government as a voluntary scheme set up to promote and support letting agents and landlords in Scotland by accrediting their property management skills.

Training events 2023

There are currently no training event scheduled in East Ayrshire. 

If you are interested in becoming a member of LAS, or attending any of the training events, please contact Landlord Accreditation Scotland.

All of the accreditation courses are suitable for landlords and letting agents regardless of number of properties managed and length of time in the industry.
