Answer for London Rental Standard

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The previous Mayor failed Londoners who rent their home.

As of March 2016, 15,279 landlords and 351 letting agent firms were accredited to the London Rental Standard. I'm afraid that data on the number of accreditations to the London Rental Standard is collected two months in arrears, so this data from March 2016 is the most recent held by the GLA.
