Landlord partnerships and accreditation schemes

We operate a Landlords' Accreditation scheme or similar partnership. The aim is to recognise competent landlords, improve communication and promote good practice in the private rented sector.

Dorset Register of Accredited Landlords

Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, East Dorset and Purbeck

This scheme, is a register of landlords who provide rented accommodation within the above areas only and who are accredited with the  National Landlords Association the Residential Landlords' Association Scheme or the National Landlord Accreditation Scheme.

Once a landlord is accredited with one of the these accreditation bodies they will be able to apply for registration with the Dorset Register. Bournemouth Council will co-ordinate the Register including applications and necessary certification on behalf of the partners. The scheme places the emphasis upon the landlord's competency and knowledge of their roles and responsibilities.

Further information and an application form including terms and conditions can be found at Bournemouth Borough Council.
