Landlords Principles of Lettings (eLearning)

This eLearning course covers all aspects of tenancy and property management and is broken down into simple sections, each containing interactive exercises, quizzes and an assessment, which on successful completion, will earn you a certificate to prove you have successfully completed the course. This course provides vital core CPD points required by the Residential Landlords Association Accreditation Scheme (RLAAS) and is recognised by other schemes.

The course content reflects the current Deregulation Act 2015 for properties in England only, currently there are no changes for properties in Wales; please see the RLA Wales website for updates.

Course Content

The course covers the following topics:

  • Pre-tenancy - preparing the property for renting, and details the checks that need to be carried out.
  • Setting up a tenancy - this covers the different kinds of tenancies, and also goes through pre-tenancy actions such as protecting a deposit.
  • Landlord repairing obligations and Health & Safety issues - this includes HHSRS, and fire, gas and electrical safety, and other safety requirements as well as your repairing obligations.
  • During the tenancy - how to deal with problems which may occur during the tenancy.
  • Ending a tenancy - this section covers the correct way to end a tenancy, including an explanation of the different notices and how to avoid claims of harassment and illegal eviction.


This course aims to explain the landlord's obligations and requirements in relation to their tenants, properties and any agents they use. The course takes you on a journey through pre, during and post-tenancy scenarios.

It's designed to meet and follow ANUK standards. This course will give you 5 basic CPD points. However, by successfully completing the assessments your points will be upgraded to 5 core CPD points. These core points can be used towards accreditation with RLAAS.
