Getting accredited

To join the scheme, simply choose a London Rental Standard provider below, and sign up for a one-day course to learn about renting out property. Courses cost £80-£125, while RLA and NLA members can take advantage of discounted or free courses on-line. It’s useful training, even for experienced landlords. You must take the course once every five years to stay accredited.

You’ll also need to sign a code of practice and declare you’re a ‘fit and proper person’. Find an approved London Rental Standard provider for landlords.
