For Landlords

Accreditation is an excellent way for responsible landlords to improve their knowledge of the sector as well as verifiably promote your services as a good landlord to tenants.

NLA Accreditation is based on the completion of a foundation course and subsequent continued professional development (CPD). As a member of NLA you can complete the course online for free via our landlord library. Alternatively you can chose to complete the course via a one-day event.

The cost of attendance is offered to members at a discounted fee of £95 (the non-member rate is £125). To find out more about our courses click here: attendance based courses

What if you are already accredited in another development based scheme ?

The NLA Accreditation Scheme will "passport" landlords who have already completed other development accreditation schemes including LLAS, MLAS and Landlord Accreditation Wales in the last five years . To utilise the passport function simply print off , read and sign the scheme rules document (download here) and return it to us either via scan and e-mail or post . Please also ensure that you include a copy of your current accreditation certificate to

Don't forget that the NLA online library can also be used to maintain your accredited status with these other development based providers .

Simply complete the modules on the library, download your CPD record and e-mail it to your accreditation provider . They will then convert whatever hours you have accrued to their points based system on a like for like basis.

Multiple Account Control

Now your linked accounts can also become accredited with us!

If your membership level with us is either FAMILY or BUSINESS then you can create some additional membership accounts at no additional cost.

If you hold FAMILY membership with us then you may want to add your partner or others to your membership. FAMILY membership will allow you to add up to TWO additional users to the membership which you as the main account holder pay for.

If you hold BUSINESS membership then you may want to add your employees or others to your membership. BUSINESS membership will allow you to add up to FOUR additional users to the membership which you as the main account holder pay for.

As the main account holder only you can control adding and deleting the additional accounts.

Continued professional Development (CPD)

However you become accredited , landlords must complete CPD (Continued Professional Development) to the equivalent of

2 hours in the first year that you are accredited

10 hours for every year thereafter .

This requirement is measured at month twelve of your accredited status every year.

For example if you become accredited on January 1st 2013 , your record will be checked automatically on the 1st January 2014 .

If no CPD has been added your status will expire .

CPD can be kept updated by completing modules on the online library, any subjects that you complete are automatically recorded on your own unique "CPD profile" as long as you are logged in to the website . You can also use this CPD profile to add any attendance based events such as NLA branch meetings etc.

More detailied information is available on the library home page
