Background

When letting a property to potential tenants we must ensure that people are treated without prejudice. There are occasions where people are negatively affecting an individual through their practices although this can be due to a lack of awareness of what is viewed as a protected characteristic. By learning more about issues that people face you can ensure you operate in a fair and professional manner. 

This training course qualifies for 1 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.
