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. As a member of the NLA ( £80 a year ) or holder of an online library subscription (£40 a year) you can complete the course online for free via our landlord library. Alternatively, you can chose to do the course via a one day event . The cost of attendace is offered to members and online library account holders at a discounted fee of £95 (non member rate is £125) .

What if you are already accredited via 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't forget that the NLA online library can also be used to maitain 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.
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 www.landlords.org.uk/library
