Gloucester 'Fit to Rent' student accommodation

"Fit to Rent" is a scheme in Gloucestershire which aims to encourage good practice in the private rented market by giving approval to landlords and Letting Agents that meet the property standard and a management code of practice.

In Gloucester, this scheme is only open to landlords who rent to students.

If you are interested in obtaining the Fit to Rent certification for your student accommodation, you will be required to pay £70.00 for a three year certificate. However landlords will not be required to pay this fee if the property is a licensed HMO.

"Fit to Rent" rewards landlords by offering financial benefits and giving landlords the recognition needed to excel in the lettings market. For further information and list of accredited properties, visit the Gloucestershire Landlords' website

If you would like to find out more or become an approved Fit to Rent Landlord, please contact Gloucester City Council on 01452 396396 or email heretohelp@gloucester.gov.uk
