The Kent Landlords Accreditation Scheme recognises good landlords and agents who run successful businesses and provide good quality, safe accommodation.
To apply for landlord accreditation:
Register at the UK Landlord Accreditation Partnership, book and pay the fee for a one-day accreditation training.
Benefits of accreditation
If you get accredited, you’ll get:
- recognition that you are a good landlord and agent
- preferential treatment by universities
- regularly updated reference material
- regular updates
You will also be re-accredited after five years if you comply with the code of conduct.
How to become accredited
To become accredited, you must:
- attend a one-day accreditation training (register for training at the UK Landlord Accreditation Partnership at a fee)
- know the rules and regulations on landlord and tenancy issues, health and safety, contracts and property management
- follow a code of conduct that involves complying with the law and carrying out urgent works quickly and drawing up plans of action if work needs to be done
- not act in a manner that reflects poorly on KLAS (Kent Landlord Accreditation Scheme)
- not have committed any offences or had actions taking against you such as harassment, discrimination and legal orders
Continuous professional development
Most events give you information that count towards your CPD like going to local landlord groups, doing additional training and seminars and membership to landlord/agent’s organisations.
