The Landlord Handbook

This ANUK/ LGA Handbook replaces and updates the ANUK/LACORS Handbook and has proved popular as the basis for much professional development and training within the landlord community.The Handbook contains the basic level of knowledge required for a landlord. It is also a model course intended for use by Accreditation Scheme Operators and Landlord Associations who wish to provide training for their landlords. It is intended to benefit a range of landlords and letting agents.

It is not designed to be specific to any locality or for landlords of particular types of properties. It allows for the diversity that exists in the Private Rented Sector (PRS). It relates equally to property standards, management and landlord and tenancy matters. The emphasis can be adjusted according to the target audience.

The latest edition of the Handbook (published in summer 2012) has been updated and amended to include:

  • Welfare reform and the Local Housing Allowance
  • Changes and updates to tenancy deposit protection
  • An improved section on the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS)
  • The addition of a template property inspection report
