Landlord groups

There is a Landlord’s Forum Steering Group that meets each month to help the Council find better ways of communicating with landlords, for example, through the Accommodate newsletter.

You can also join the Midland Landlord Accreditation Scheme (MLAS). All members are required to adhere to strict standards in order to gain MLAS accreditation.
