|Call for Landlord Accreditation|
One day training course available
Landlords in Hounslow borough are being encouraged to join more than 11,000 others across London by taking part in a scheme that shows their properties are managed effectively, legally and profitably.
The London Landlord Accreditation Scheme (LLAS) gives landlords all the skills and knowledge they need to be a good landlord including how to create and end tenancies correctly, how to manage properties and what property standards the law requires.
Cllr Steve Curran, cabinet member for housing and education, said:“Becoming accredited not only shows you’ve received high quality training, but shows a commitment to providing a good-quality service for tenants, which will benefit your business for years to come.
“Housing law is constantly changing, so there is always something new, so even experienced landlords could learn something.”
Accredited landlords receive a one day training course covering a wide range of landlord topics, a detailed landlord manual, regular landlord newsletters, updates on changes in the law and once accredited, a reduced HMO licence fee.
To become accredited landlords need to simply attend a local one-day landlord course and agree to abide by a landlord’s code of practice. There is a small fee for the course but upon accreditation all the benefits are free for five years. Accredited landlords can also use the LLAS logo in their documentation, get access to the hugely informative LLAS website and attend the award ceremony dinner at a central London hotel.
A series of LLAS landlord days are taking place in Hounslow this year, on 7 February, 13 May and 5 September, at Hounslow Civic Centre.
