Supporting private landlords


Cheshire East Council (CEC) is calling on local private landlords to sign up to a new scheme.

The Authority has joined Cheshire West and Chester Council and Warrington Borough Council to launch the Cheshire Landlord Accreditation Scheme. It aims to promote reputable landlords to prospective tenants on a Cheshire-wide database, accessible through the CEC website.

The scheme wants to hear from landlords who go that extra mile, managing their properties to a high standard, beyond the basic legal requirements.

The scheme aims to:

  • Publicly recognise landlords who exceed basic standards of accommodation.
  • Promote the good physical condition of a property.
  • Promote good management practices.
  • Create and maintain a stock of private rented accommodation.
  • Give tenants the assurance of renting good accommodation.
  • Give training, advice and updated information to landlords.

Landlords can now apply to join the Landlord Accreditation Scheme. A small fee is charged to cover a compulsory training session for all landlords who sign up to the scheme. The accreditation membership is reviewed every three years.

Cheshire East Councillor Jamie Macrae, Cabinet member with responsibility for prosperity, said:  “Private landlords play an essential role in the provision of accommodation across Cheshire. It is acknowledged and appreciated that many private landlords manage their tenancies well, and provide and maintain properties to a good standard, often above the standard required by the law.

“It is important to recognise these landlords and encourage and support others to achieve this higher standard.”

To become accredited, landlords can contact 0300 123 5017, email or visit
