  • Understand your legal obligations as a landlord throughout the entire lettings process 
  • You will be confident in knowing what is required to comply with the various responsibilities you have 
  • Awareness of the consistent steps required at each stage of the tenancy lifecycle


If you are letting a residential property it is crucial to have a legal understanding of the main issues involved. There are many requirements placed on landlords by the law, with failure to meet these leading to hefty fines and even criminal charges. Designed to take you through the complete lettings process from start to end of a tenancy, we cover all aspects of tenancy and property management; whether you are creating a tenancy, dealing with rent arrears or ensuring the safety of your property, the course will provide the clarification needed for landlords about your responsibilities and obligations, taking through the key foundations of being a landlord in relation to both your property and your tenants.

As a requirement for NRLA accreditation, the course will also include an optional assessment which underpins the days learning. Upon successfully passing the assessment you will qualify for 5 core CPD points. The successful completion of the assessment may be required for various licensing schemes. Please consult your local authority for clarification.

This training course qualifies for 5 continuous professional development (CPD) points which can help towards or maintain your accreditation with the NRLA. If you are interested in becoming an accredited landlord with the NRLA, CPD points are necessary to achieve that status. 

NRLA Accreditation recognises landlords who have agreed to maintain professional standards in the management and maintenance of their rented property and deal fairly and professionally with their tenants. Accredited members demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of their responsibilities and obligations and strive to maintain, increase and improve their knowledge of the market through training and development. CPD points are awarded for all activities which improve those attributes and are a requisite of membership of the NRLA Accreditation Scheme.
