Landlord accreditation is a voluntary scheme that encourages and actively promotes good property standards and management practice by landlords, and assists both landlords and tenants to undertake their respective responsibilities to each other.
The Greater Manchester Landlord Accreditation Scheme (GM LAS) has been set up to provide a unified service to all landlords operating across the City-Region and is based upon the standards and practices of A&LIST NW (a regional body of Authorities & Landlords Improving Standards Together in the North West).
In joining the GM LAS you can be assured that each of the Greater Manchester authorities has signed up to provide a standardised Landlord Accreditation Scheme in accordance with the minimum service set out in the ‘Code of Standards and Management Practice’ (see ‘Related Documents'). Authorities are also obliged to provide all the necessary support and advice that you need to be an excellent and responsible landlord.
In return, by joining the scheme you are committed to providing the best possible management practices and property standards across your portfolio, all of which will contribute to improving standards in the private rented sector.
