Landlord accreditation for people working in the private rental sector

What Landlord Accreditation Scotland is, what it provides, the benefits of accreditation for people working in the private rental sector.

We encourage all landlords and agents to become members of the Landlord Accreditation Scotland, Scotland's leading provider of accreditation and industry training for people working in the private rented sector.

Becoming a member will:

  • provide benefits for both private landlords and their tenants
  • promote best practice and continuous improvement of standards
  • provide training opportunities for landlords
  • provide advice to landlords and tenants
  • give tenants reassurance that their landlord will operate to high standards.

Being awarded accredited status is a method of standing out from other landlords and letting agents.

To become accredited, landlords and letting agents must adhere to the Scottish core standards for accredited landlords.

Landlords who already carry out good management practices will be ready to achieve these standards.
