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. Becoming accredited, along with undertaking eLearning courses, provides landlords with knowledge on key issues and how to implement change when required, ensuring you have the confidence to conduct your business in a professional manner with the support of our knowledgeable team.

To become accredited with us, landlords/letting agents must:

  • agree to comply with a code of conduct (click here for the document)
  • be a fit and proper person
  • pay £100 fee for 12 month membership
  • complete eLearning training or provide evidence of other recognised courses relating to housing

Please note, once you have signed up to our accreditation scheme, and paid the fee, you will receive your log in details as soon as possible for your eLearning portal.  Once you have this detail you must complete the compulsory online training or provide us with evidence of other training you have completed with another approved accreditation scheme within one month of registering.
