Free 'Property to Let' Advertising
The free advertising service is available to landlords who are members of the Bolton Landlord Accreditation Scheme who have signed up to the GM LAS (Greater Manchester Landlord Accreditation Scheme) Code of Standards and Management Practices brought into effect mid-2011.
If you are not a member or your membership requires updating, please contact us to obtain a membership application form or download one from this website.
Properties must be accredited to be advertised free to provide prospective tenants with some assurance regards property safety and management standards. This means having the following:
Current valid Gas Safety Certificate
Satisfactory Domestic Periodic Electrical Safety Certificate
Energy Performance Certificate
Copy or sample of Tenancy Agreement used
Satisfactory Accreditation Property Assessment within last 6-12 months
Where a property assessment is required, an appointment can usually be arranged fairly quickly.
The service also includes the following:
Former Tenant Reference Check on potential applicants identified for consideration for the property advertised. A Tenancy Application Form will be provided to the landlord to use this service - this allows the landlord to find out whether the prospective tenant had a social housing tenancy before and if so, whether it ended with any anti social behaviour, rent arrears etc.
Various Tenancy Forms and Documents available to accredited members
