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 will compliment 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 a voluntary national landlord accreditation scheme for private landlords, letting agents and land agents who let or manage residential property.
The company is co-owned by the Scottish Association of Landlords (SAL) and the Scottish Rural Property and Business Association (SRPBA), the two largest landlord associations in Scotland, and is supported by the Scottish Government. The scheme is run by landlords for landlords, to promote best practice in the private rented sector in Scotland.
We would like to encourage landlords to provide high standard of accommodation and be recognised for doing so. Accreditation is one way of highlighting that you are doing this.
