Rent Safe provides potential tenants & landlords with a list of agents that have achieved the accredited status under the Rent Safe Scheme, together with an overview of the number of properties that have reached the accredited minimum standards required for 3, 4 or 5 stars. As well as appearing on the Rent Safe register, landlords & agents will receive a Certificate of Accreditation which they are obliged to provide tenants with sight of upon request.
By using an accredited landlord you know, before looking at a property, that the landlord:
takes their tenant's welfare seriously
takes action to resolve issues quickly
works to make sure their properties continue to meet recognised housing standards
Rent Safe is a voluntary scheme and whilst all landlords are able to register their properties, only those that meet an accredited rating are listed on the Rent Safe register.
