Rent with Confidence

Rent with Confidence

Bristol City Council, in conjunction with Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Councils, has relaunched a scheme that aims to help people find good quality rented accommodation in the city and surrounding areas.

Rent with Confidence is a voluntary scheme that aims to protect tenants by setting out a benchmark for landlords and letting agents in the private rented sector and does not replace the enforcement tools available to the council to make landlords comply with minimum standards..

It is hoped that the scheme will protect tenants by recognising good landlords and agents and exposing poor ones.

The scheme will help tenants rent with confidence, knowing that their landlord or agent is approved and should meet realistic standards and includes a section on tenant responsibilities .

Six organisations have been approved and their accredited agents and landlords will be able to use the scheme logo and marketing material.

The approved organisations are:

  • Bristol Association of Letting and Managing Agents
  • Bristol University Student Union Lettings
  • South West Landlords Association
  • National Landlord Association (accredited members only)
  • Residential Landlords Association (accredited members only)
  • National Landlords Code of Excellence

Other organisations can now apply to be accredited. To find out more details please see or email
