What is the London Landlord Accreditation Scheme?
The London Landlord Accreditation Scheme (LLAS) awards accreditation to reptuable landlords who undergo training and comply with a code of conduct. Accredited landlords are able to display the LLAS logo as a badge of good practice and access a range of products and incentives including local authority grants, leasing schemes and discounts on fees for licences and other charges.
It was set up in 2004 as a partnership of landlord organisations, educational organisations and 33 London boroughs. Since out-of-London boroughs have joined the partnership, it is now also known as UK Landlord Accreditation Partnership (UKLAP).
Accreditation with LLAS is free.
To become accredited with LLAS or UKLAP, landlords must:
- complete a one-day development course
- agree to comply with a code of conduct
- be a fit and proper person.
Accreditation lasts for five years.
