If you are considering using this agreement, it is very important that you first read the Government’s introductory guidance note.

Landlord Accreditation


The Midland Landlord Accreditation Scheme (MLAS) is a scheme to recognise and promote good landlords who provide their tenants with high quality, safe accommodation. Any individual, agent, partnership or limited company can apply to become accredited, but they must attend a one day development course.
