Why should
Letting Agents become accredited?

All Letting Agents in Scotland are required by law to be registered with the Scottish Government and to abide by the Letting Agent Code of Practice. How do you then set your agency apart to show that your business is operating over and above the minimum requirements?  Accredited Letting agents agree to comply with the Scottish Core Standards for Accredited Landlords and Letting Agents  demonstrating their commitment to being the best in the industry.  Accreditation is an excellent way of giving good Letting Agents public recognition and helping tenants seek safe, secure and good quality accommodation to rent.

All Accredited Letting Agents will benefit from:

  •   the status of being publicly identified as a good agent
  •   distancing themselves from incompetent or unscrupulous agents
  •   the business advantage of advertising their accredited status to tenants who place emphasis on good quality and well managed accommodation
  •   access to in-house training services
  •   discounted rate for the LETWELL programme and CPD courses
  •   discounted rates for legal services with TC Young Fees

Landlord Accreditation Scotland aims to work with Letting Agents to:

  •   promote good standards of management and best practise by agents

  •   assist agents and tenants to fulfill their responsibilities with regard to rented accommodation
  •   reduce disputes and misunderstandings between agents and tenants
  •   provide up-to-date information on new legislation, initiatives or policies affecting the private renting sector
  •   access to support and advice & training from housing professionals
