The South Gloucestershire Property Accreditation Scheme is a voluntary, free of charge scheme for landlords and agents. The scheme aims to encourage, acknowledge and raise the standards of private rented accommodation by looking at the management and physical condition of properties.
It has been developed by West of England local authorities in consultation with the West of England Landlord Panel.
The South Gloucestershire Property Accreditation Scheme consists of two standards 'Accreditation' and 'Accreditation Plus'. Click here to read the standards.
After we have recieved an application, a Private Sector Housing Officer from South Gloucestershire Council will inspect the property to ensure it meets the accreditation standards.
