Landlord Accreditation Scheme

If you rent out one or more properties you may wish to consider signing up to be a member of our voluntary Landlord Accreditation Scheme.

Through the scheme, landlords sign up to a code of standards and work with the Council to improve property standards and management conditions in the private rented sector.

The benefits for landlords include:

  • Maintain your status of being a good landlord.
  • Help from the Council's landlord liaison officer to access other Stockton Council and partner agency services.
  • Access to training and development opportunities.
  • Discounts on goods and services.
  • Access to a bond guarantee scheme.
  • Free advertising of properties to let.
  • £50 per unit of accommodation discount on Houses in Multiple Occupation licence fees.
