LAS provide training and development courses across Scotland:

What we provide

Landlords and letting agents can access information regarding the private rented sector from many different sources. However Landlord Accreditation Scotland provides information based on Scottish legislation and best practice within the industry.

Becoming accredited, along with regular attendance at courses and information events, provides landlords with knowledge on key issues and how to implement change when required, ensuring they have the confidence to conduct their business in a professional manner.

Elspeth Boyle, LAS Director

Becoming an accredited landlord or letting agent with LAS is a way of demonstrating to landlords and tenants that your management practices are above the minimum legal requirements. The standards that have to be met prior to being awarded accredited status are reasonable and realistic; landlords who already carry out good management practices are well on their way to achieving them.

Show that you are striving to meet the Highest Standards

Accredited status shows that private landlords are striving to comply with the Scottish Core Standards for Accredited Landlords.

No charge to become an accredited landlord

Accreditation is granted on completion of the application process and by attendance at a minimum of one Core Standard training session annually.
