Landlord Accreditation Wales

The Landlord Accreditation Wales Scheme is a national scheme of which Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council is a member.

It recognises good landlords and helps them differentiate themselves from less reputable landlords who give the rental market a bad name. It also allows tenants to seek out professional landlords who offer good, well managed accommodation.

It works by accrediting the landlord, not the property, therefore identifying the participants as competent and professional in their dealings with their properties and tenants, and with the skills necessary to run a successful business.  

As an organisation LAW supports landlords with information and guidance on changes in legislation as well as sharing best practice. LAW is recognised by its distinctive logo (shown), which members are able to use as a badge to demonstrate their professionalism and gain market advantage.

Further information can be obtained by going to the Landlord Accreditation Wales website|.

The new edition of the Landlord Handbook, published by LACORS and ANUK in consultation with the LAW scheme is now available to download from the LAW website.  The manual contains the basic level of knowledge required for a landlord. It compliments the content of the Landlord Accreditation Course and is a useful reference document. It is intended to benefit a range of landlords and letting agents. It is not designed to be specific to any locality or for landlords of particular types of properties. It allows for the diversity that exists in the Private Rented Sector (PRS). It relates equally to property standards, management and landlord and tenancy matters.
