Voluntary accreditation scheme launched

Durham County Council has launched a voluntary accreditation scheme for landlords.  The cost is £150 and for that a landlord has access to:
  • guidance on best practice
  • access to a credit referencing system
  • assistance in cases of anti-social behaviour amongst their tenants
In return a landlord will need to meet a code of practice giving their tenants the reassurance that they will offer good quality and well managed accommodation.

"The Private Landlord Accreditation Scheme is a win/win situation for the rental market in County Durham” claims a council spokesman.
