BetterLet: RTB Accredited Landlord

The RTB invites you to become a Betterlet: Accredited Landlord

The free training is designed to:

  1. Make you aware of your rights and responsibilities as a landlord and the responsibilities of your tenants.
  2. Help you fulfil them.

What will I learn?

The free training session takes place over one full-Saturday or over two weekday evening sessions and the content covers:

  • Pre-tenancy guidance
  • How to manage a tenancy throughout from beginning to end
  • Rights and responsibilities for landlords and tenants
  • Dispute prevention and what to do if things go wrong
  • Minimum standards – how to ensure your property is compliant with the minimum standards
  • Setting and reviewing the rent inside and outside an RPZ
  • How to end a tenancy – information on how to correctly serve notice and what reasons can be relied upon

Why should I attend?

The RTB recognises the invaluable role landlords have in providing homes but also that the legal framework governing the rental sector is complex and continually changing. It can be difficult to manage tenancies and keep up to date with the policy and legislative changes in the sector.

Betterlet: RTB Accredited Landlords will be able to set themselves apart in the rental sector and be recognised as professionals providing a quality service to their tenants while also being confident in how to apply and adhere to the regulatory framework under which they operate their business. 

Please note that the Betterlet scheme is currently only open to individual landlords and not property professionals or agents.
