How to become an Accredited Landlord Today?
Landlord Accreditation Scotland is a voluntary scheme by which landlords can assure tenants that the tenancy arrangement they have adheres to the high standards as outlined in the Scottish Core Standards for Accredited Landlords. It is also a means for quality landlords operating within these standards to receive the recognition and support they deserve.
The standards were designed to be reasonable and realistic; landlords who already carry out good management practices will find themselves well on the way to achieving them. Once accredited you are required to attend one of the LAS Core Standards training session annually. Courses are available around the country throughout the year
You can apply to become an accredited Landlord by completing the online form here or by requesting an application form from the LAS office.
