Local Authorities who sign up to DASH may offer a discount on the license fee for being an accredited landlord. Discounts may be given for mandatory, additional or selective licensing.
Unlike accreditation the licence fee applies ‘per property’ and not ‘per landlord’. So, as an accredited landlord you can apply for a discount for each license required.
Local Authorities offer a discount in acknowledgement of landlords who demonstrate they have a good level of property and tenant mangement. LA's find that accredited landlords are less of a risk and less work is required to process and issue a license.
Each Local Authority will charge slightly different fees for their licences, so check with your Local Authority to find out if there is a discount and how much it will be.
