Accredition scheme with NRLA involvement launched by council

A  council is set to ask local landlords of rental properties to join an accreditation scheme to improve standards and deliver better homes for tenants.

Milton Keynes council has teamed up with the National Landlords Resident Association on the scheme, which will offer landlords 12 months of free membership of the NRLA, as well as high quality training, and access to low-cost products to protect people’s deposits among other benefits.

By helping local landlords, the council aims to improve housing conditions for private tenants.

The council will next week decide whether to hold a special meeting for private landlords in the New Year. 

Council leader Pete Marland says: “It’s important landlords understand their duties. We want everyone to be able to live in safe and warm homes which are well maintained in line with national regulations. 

“Our accreditation scheme will give landlords guidance and assurance that they’re complying with the right standards so they can provide a better home for their tenants.”

 

Milton Keynes council recently launched an AST scheme where landlords can qualify for what is described as “a large cash incentive from the council” on top of rent received by offering a family a home for a longer period, which will help the council reduce the number of people in temporary accommodation. 

The scheme also offers landlords rent in advance, deposits, property inspections, and dedicated support.
