The strawberry team have been recognised by Bristol City Council and the West of England Partnership by the award of a new rental accreditation standard called ‘rent with confidence’.
Rent with confidence is a voluntary scheme that aims to protect tenants by setting out a benchmark for landlords and letting agents in the private rented sector. The scheme will help tenants rent with confidence, knowing that their landlord or agent is approved and should meet realistic standards. Representatives from landlords, agents and tenant groups worked closely together to agree the standards needed for the award.
Recent additions to the scheme include a section on tenant responsibilities, new incentives for accredited landlords and ethical letting principles, which included meeting Bristol City Council’s commitment to integrate ACORN’s Ethical Letting Scheme (bronze level).
The award scheme is run by Bristol City Council in conjunction with Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Councils and has also been supported by Plymouth City Council.
