Information for landlords
To give students and their parents’ peace of mind we advertise University approved off campus accommodation.
If you wish to advertise your properties with us you must be accredited/or working towards accreditation by DASH Landlord Accreditation and provide us with your registration number.
This scheme accredits landlords rather than individual properties and is supported by Loughborough University, Charnwood Borough Council and other Local Authorities in the East Midlands region.
The properties of a Landlord accredited under the DASH Scheme will meet the minimum standards to provide a safe living environment. The premises will, for example, be in a good state of repair, meet relevant fire regulations, have appropriate gas and electrical safety certificates, and have study bedrooms of a specific standard.
You will be required to attend a one day training course covering property management based on the ANUK/IDeA landlord development manual and the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS). In addition, you are required to participate in a minimum of 10 hours continual professional development per year.
