Approved Landlord Scheme

From 1 October 2016, we will only accept exchange listings from tenants of approved landlords.  If your landlord is not part of the scheme, they can join for a one-off payment of £25, and each year will be billed £5 for each new listing from their tenants.

For example:

Changeychange Housing Association have six tenants on the list, and joins the Approved Landlord Scheme.  In April 2017 they pay their £25, plus an extra £10 because two tenants joined the list during the year.  In 2018, they pay £15 because another three have joined, and in 2019, they had nothing to pay, as no one joined the list during the year. 

Currently taking part in the scheme are:

  • East Lothian Housing Association
  • East Lothian Council
  • Homes for Life Housing Partnership
  • Melville Housing Association
  • Dunedin Canmore Housing Association
  • Margaret Blackwood Housing Association
  • West Granton Housing Co-Operative
