LAS Aims to:

  • promote best practice and continuous improvement of standards in the private rented sector in Scotland
  • provide tenancy management advice to landlords and letting agents giving tenants reassurance that they can expect their landlord or letting agent to operate high management standards through an ongoing programme of training throughout the country


Who recognises accredited landlords and letting agents?

LAS works in partnership with local authorities across Scotland, to maximise contact with all Scottish landlords and agents. Local authorities recognise that those who have chosen to meet accreditation standards are those providing the best service for tenants in that area. The Scottish Government supports the aims and objectives of LAS, and recognises the good practice of accredited landlords and agents.

What is the benefit of being accredited with LAS?

LAS offer Scottish landlords and letting agents a method of recognition in an industry where professionalism is paramount. By becoming accredited, you have access to a wide range of training, information and support documents, as well as regular email updates to help you provide the highest management standards.
