The London Rental Standard (LRS) initiative is designed to raise professional standards in the capital’s private rented sector by providing a consistent benchmark of accreditation for consumers. LRS is a voluntary set of minimum standards that the Mayor of London expects of letting agents operating in London’s private rented sector.
ARLA Accreditation of London Rental Standard
The Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) has been appointed as one of the accrediting bodies for London Rental Standard. As an organisation, we believe in maintaining the highest professional standards in the sector and have long called for more regulation of letting agents.
ARLA fully supports the aims of the London Rental Standard. It is crucial we eliminate the small minority of rogue landlords and agents who neglect their responsibilities and bring our industry into disrepute. We are therefore proud to be working with the Mayor on this first step towards a more regulated industry.
NFoPP Regulation is managing ARLA's accreditation of the London Rental Standard (LRS). In order to apply for LRS accreditation you must be the company’s principle, partner or director and meet the requirement of LRS.
