   CRISIS LANDLORD SURVEY 2016
 
 

Crisis focus on the development of private renting services across the UK which support both tenants and landlords.

Recently, the housing team has been supporting schemes to develop services specifically for people on low incomes, in need of shared accommodation in the private rented sector.

The opinions and concerns expressed by landlords within this survey will be valuable in shaping the design (or redesign) of these services. The survey should take less than five minutes and we really appreciate any input.

  LANDLORD/AGENT TRAINING

Landlord Accreditation Scotland (LAS) provides information for private landlords based on Scottish legislation and best practice within the industry. Becoming accredited with LAS, along with regular attendance at courses and information events, provides landlords with knowledge on key issues and how to implement change when required, ensuring they have the confidence to conduct their business in a professional manner.


The range of training courses provided by LAS cover both legislation and best practice in the private rented sector.  It can be very difficult to keep track of the changes to legislation which affect our responsibilities as landlords and agents.  The courses that are available to you cover all of these responsibilities and are updated in line with ever changing legislation.

More information can be found about courses in West Lothian and surrounding areas here.
