Why be accredited?

Rent it Right is a voluntary scheme designed to recognise good practice in the private rented sector. Give your tenants the confidence to know that you are a responsible landlord with properties that are of a good standard.

Reasons to join

  • Free website advertising of properties linked to Portsmouth City Councils website
  • The status of being publicly identified as a good landlord
  • Distancing yourselves from incompetent and 'rogue' landlords
  • Recognition that you are a good landlord and that you provide tenants with a good standard of accommodation and management - this will differentiate you from non-accredited landlords and agents.
  • Ease of access to, and support from the Private Sector Housing Team and other local authority departments
  • A dedicated officer on hand to offer help, advice and support
  • Information on legislative changes and updates and other matters affecting you as a landlord within the Portsmouth area, including regular emails, workshops and consultations on future initiatives and plans.
  • Access to our premium landlord account allowing you to manage your property certificates, advertise, update and pay other council departments such as council tax, parking and arrange bulk collections.
  • Working with landlords, we will constantly seek to develop and improve the range of benefits to ensure they meet your needs.
