Accreditation represents quality. It show a landlords is serious about setting, achieving and maintaining high standards.

DASH Landlord Accreditation

The aim of DASH Landlord Accreditation is to encourage and promote good property standards and management practices in the private rented sector.

DASH accreditation offers people working in the private rented sector the opportunity to gain a quality mark in recognition for the good work that they do.

DASH accreditation identifies a landlord as one who has attained certain standards and commits to upholding a code of conduct (the DASH scheme manual). (Please note DASH does not accredit companies or agencies) 

A percentage of a landlord’s rented properties are checked to ensure they meet the scheme requirements and where necessary a landlord is given time to address any issues found.

Tenants benefit from the reassurance that a DASH accredited landlord has been educated and shown what a safe and decent property should look like.

Accreditation offers the private rented sector a means of ‘self regulation’; that is to say DASH accreditation services is not an enforcement body. DASH’s success comes from working in partnership with a range of other partners to help raise housing standards.

DASH has been managing a landlord accreditation service since 2008 and our success has been widely acclaimed.
