Martin & Co Truro has welcomed a new partnership between Cornwall Council, local housing professionals and local landlord representative groups that has created 'The Cornwall Responsible Landlord Scheme' and has been launched to help landlords in Cornwall. The scheme is being introduced to help offer safe, well managed and better quality accommodation while complying with any current or new legislation. The rented sector has expanded dramatically in the last decade and in Cornwall there is a thriving private rented sector offering high standards and well managed accommodation across the county. However it is believed that in the region of 20,000 rented properties in Cornwall do not meet the proper standard often presenting risks to tenants.
The partnership encourages all private landlords and letting agents operating in Cornwall to register on the scheme using a simple on-line process.
