We have explored establishing an online list of accredited agents and landlords. Whilst accredited agents can be found by visiting the ARLA and NALS websites, it is more difficult to publish a list of accredited landlords due to data protection difficulties and the fact that landlord accreditation bodies do not record information about properties owned by their members.
