Owen can I ask you to questions
when the NLA carry out accreditation
1 Are vetting checks carried out ie is ID shown and are CRB checks done and checked
2 Do the NLA take the time to gather a list of properties owned by the Landlord and do they pass this on to a Council
Accreditation is good but it needs to be stronger and the information should be shared with the Councils
Its no good having education if the NLA cant check the background
the fact is NLA membership has been used to gain discounts and the members have turned out to be poor landlords
The NLA do need to up there game if there membership is being awarded to the wrong folk
and then that effects all us members

See you have outlined the problem with Landlord accreditation
Its very good that you have it so well done
But it means nothing in regard to enforcement
The Council are looking for background checks CRB ect
The NLA Accreditation is not giving that giving Councils that information of the houses you own and manage
With the greatest respect you could be a criminal who is hiding behind the NLA membership which I am sure your not
You know the rules but that alone wont be enough for the Council in Newcastle You would still have to prove your a fit and proper person
The Current NLA accreditation means nothing in real terms to anyone else apart from you and I would imagine most tenants would not even know what we are talking about
I have too joined RLA too they have done a lot of work in Newcastle so my support is with them
I have been a NLA member for a very long time ?? But I am thinking of letting my membership lapse next year
"research showed on the old Selective Licence that discounts were awarded to Rouge landlords who joined the NLA only to get a discount"
I'd love to hear NLA's thoughts on this. You'd presume landlords in full knowledge of the PRS via NLA website would be better landlords.

The NLA were not at the meeting last night
and if they had been there they would have been very upset indeed
But I think the Council are right anyone could become a member and they could get discounts
They need to up there game and have some form of accreditation that has some form of CRB checks and lists of property the Landlords own and that list should be given to the council so they know who has been checked and who has not
This brings the NLA into disrepute and its will effect all members
