The London Landlord Accreditation Scheme (LLAS) launched on 9 July 2004 as a partnership of London boroughs, landlord organisations and educational organisations to recognise good practice and improve conditions in the private rented sector.
The scheme provides training and on-going professional development. It asks that landlords comply with a code of conduct and fulfil the fit and proper person requirement.
An umbrella organisation, UKLAP exists to promote the LLAS model outside of London. Regions accross the UK are now affiliated with LLAS. You do not need to own and rent a property in London to become accredited by LLAS.
