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.
We have 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.
We 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.
For a company to meet the requirements to join the LRS it must:
In order to apply for LRS accreditation you must be the principal, partner or director of the company (legal entity) you wish to be accredited. For more information please check our frequently asked questions.
If you are a business owner and your company meets the above requirements, you may apply using the LRS Declaration of Compliance.
We have created a version of our find an expert tool specifically for people looking for London Rental Standard Agents accredited by us.
