Is your landlord or letting agent accredited with Telford & Wrekin Council?
If you are renting a property from a landlord or letting agent you can check on our website here to see if they are accredited. Any landlord or letting agent accredited by us have signed a code of conduct and have declared that they are a Fit and Proper person. The scheme requires members to act reasonably and responsibly towards tenants to ensure that the properties are of a good standard and well maintained.

If your landlord or letting agent is accredited with us but you feel they are not living up to the code of conduct please contact us and we will look into the matter further.
