Welcome to the NLCE – Creating Better Homes for all

Sep 14th, 2016


The NLCE is a forward thinking group of pro-active landlords & agents. Offering a national solution to best practice letting guidelines, property maintenance tracking, accreditation and training. Read on … What is the NLCE

Our experience has shown over the years that most problems arise in a tenancy because of property repairs and maintenance issues.

This is why to overcome this problem the NLCE has created a national tenant repair reporting system. The streamlined system allows tenants to make a formal written notification to their landlord about property issues/repairs, which can then be escalated to their local authority for inspection if their landlord fails to respond within a reasonable period of time.

This service is free to all UK tenants and formalises the reporting of repairs.

         Benefits to all UK landlords, agents and tenants:

  • VERY easy to use
  • Offers private tenants formal notification in writing and date stamped of complaint made
  • Allows landlords/agents to respond to the notice, to prove pro-activeness in getting rented property repairs sorted as soon as possible; in full compliance with The Deregulation Act
  • Stops spurious claims from a tenant; that they have reported a repair and the landlord has not responded and vice versa

Property Management

In today’s culture of “where there is blame there is a claim” it is imperative that landlords document and itemise everything that is required of them. For instance, if a landlord does not register a deposit properly they can end up paying 3 times the deposit to a tenant in compensation, or failure to register an annual gas certificate can land a PRS buy-to-let property investor in jail.

At the NLCE we offer those who wish to adopt the code of excellence and become accredited the opportunity to have a free management dashboard too!
