Leeds Landlords’ Accreditation Scheme (LLAS).
LLAS is a voluntary scheme for private residential landlords with rental properties in Leeds operated on behalf of the council by the Residential Landlords' Association (RLASS Ltd). This is a company wholly owned by the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) and will be monitored by us to ensure the contract is complied with.
The aims of the scheme are to encourage, acknowledge and promote good standards of property management and conditions within privately rented accommodation. Compliance with the scheme will ensure good property conditions/management standards and prompt dispute resolution.
Members will agree to:
- Provide RLAAS Ltd with a list of properties they own (which will be held in strictest confidence for the sole purpose of enabling random compliance checks to be carried out);
- Provide access to properties for RLAAS Ltd to carry out compliance checks;
- Ensure that properties are not in a condition that is liable to be hazardous to the health and safety of tenants, visitors or members of the community;
- Ensure all their properties meet the requirements of the scheme, or alternatively;
- Where a minority of a landlords’ properties are not fully compliant, apply for a concession and agree a property improvement plan to improve, within a reasonable timescale, any property that does not fully meet the requirements of the scheme and accordingly inform any prospective new tenants of this arrangement;
- Be committed to partnership working.
Members of the LLAS will be provided with a package of benefits exclusively to participating landlords to enhance their business and provide access to a range of our services. For full details of the LLAS scheme and benefits of membership, please visit the RLASS Website on 'External Links' or telephone 0844 8871406
Already accredited with another scheme?
LLAS is a property based scheme whereby a percentage of these are inspected by us for compliance with minimum standards. We appreciate that there are complimentary schemes across the UK based upon the principle of a landlord member completing a foundation course and agreeing to continue with professional development. As such, if you are accredited with the NLA (National Landlords' Association) or the RLA (Residential Landlords' Association) and have successfully completed an approved foundation course, you will also be recognised as fulfilling the training element of our selective licensing requirements.
