Telford & Wrekin Accreditation Scheme

Landlord Accreditation

The Telford and Wrekin Landlord Accreditation Scheme awards accreditation to reputable landlords and letting agents who undergo training and comply with our code of conduct.

New associate member feature 

Following consultation with our accredited landlords and agents we have introduced an associate membership for those landlords who use an accredited letting agent but still want to be recognised as a good landlord through the accreditation scheme.

This is for landlords who use an accredited letting agent to manage their property. An annual membership fee of £50 will gain access to all the above benefits apart from the tenancy related advice. Applying is easy, see the APPLY HERE box and enter your details, then select the relevant letting agent who will approve your membership. This membership does not require the associate member to complete our OLLIE training.
