Excluding marketing budgets and staff costs the only additional GLA expenditure on the London Rental Standard was £8,200 in 2014/15 on legal fees.

In addition the GLA made a grant of £100,000 to the London Borough of Camden in 2014/14 for the improvement of the London Landlord Accreditation Scheme to assist them, among other things, to become a London Rental Standard accreditation provider. £51,500 of this money has so far been spent (see DD1077).
