About Allerdale Rent With Confidence

Back

 

 

Allerdale Borough Council has launched the Allerdale Rent With Confidence scheme to work with private landlords to improve the quality of Private Rented Sector (PRS) housing through its five-star rating system. This is above and beyond the statutory legal minimum requirement.

 

 

The Allerdale Rent with Confidence (ARWC) star rating system came into effect in March 2019 as a pilot scheme in the St Michael’s area of Workington and aims to encourage greater customer choice and raise living standards. It is intended that the scheme will expand to eventually cover the whole of Allerdale.

The scheme works in a similar way to the rating scheme used by the Food Standards Agency for restaurants and takeaways.

Stars are awarded to landlords who comply with the law and who rent out property above the minimum statutory standards.  Landlords who register in the pilot project and engage with the council will be able to access foundation training by the National Landlords Association, allowing them to become accredited.

 

ARWC enables tenants to choose their property through the ARWC portal. The properties will have been checked and approved by the council as meeting the relevant star rating standards.

ARWC aims to work with tenants, landlords and agents collectively to raise housing standards besides continuing to target rogue landlords that put their tenants at risk.

The ARWC website provides detailed information about the scheme and will enable landlords and agents to register their properties and tenants to register their interest and choose a suitable property.

An Environmental Health Officer or a Housing Standard Officer will inspect the property before a star rating is confirmed and, if appropriate,  will provide advice on works that may be required to achieve a higher rating. In some cases, a property may not meet the minimum legal requirement, and the officers will work with the landlord and agent to help them achieve an acceptable star rating for the property.
