We have a strategic approach to the housing needs of everyone in our community and recognise the important role the private rented sector has in providing accommodation for a diverse range of households.
As part of this new approach, we have set up a Sussex wide voluntary accreditation scheme, the Sussex Landlord Accreditation Scheme (SLAS), that recognizes landlords who manage their properties to a good standard.

What is Accreditation?
Accreditation is voluntary with a set of standards relating to the management or physical condition of privately rented accommodation.
Landlords who join the scheme and abide by the standards are "accredited" and are recognized across Sussex as good landlords. There is no compulsion for landlords to join, but there are many advantages.
Who Can Join the Scheme?
The scheme is open to any landlord and also to those who are considering becoming a landlord. A landlord does not necessarily have to own any property in Sussex to join.

Who Operates the SLAS Accreditation Scheme?
The scheme is a partnership made up of some Sussex councils and landlord associations, including Eastbourne Borough Council. The scheme is administered by Camden Council in London on behalf of the partnership.
