Benefits of Accreditation

The PRSAS offers positive recognition for landlords or agents who become accredited with us and comply with the scheme. In addition, below are some further benefits.

*Please note: some of the below benefits may only apply to landlords only (or agents only).

There are many benefits of being an accredited landlord or agent.

These include:

Local authority benefits

Benefits from local authorities vary, however, here at the Private Rented Sector Accreditation Scheme we try and encourage local authorities to offer some of the following (all subject to each authority):

  • Discounted licensing fees
  • Housing Benefit hot-line
  • Free waste disposal for accredited landlords
  • Parking permits for the location of properties
  • Pre-action correspondence in relation to Housing Health and Safety Rating System
  • Landlord / agent liaison contact
  • Use of local authority coat of arms logo alongside the PRSAS logo on stationery

Images / Badges

Once you are accredited, you can use our badges to show off that you are accredited. They are availableĀ in all sorts of formats for web use or high resolution printing.
