Background

From May 25th 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will form the new standard by which landlords and agents deal with sensitive personal information for their tenants and clients. It replaces the Data Protection Act and introduces a number of significant changes to the way you should be processing personal information.

This training course qualifies for 1 continuous professional development (CPD) point 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.
