This cross-industry code is intended to promote best practice in the letting and management of private rented sector housing in England.

The aim of the code is to ensure:

  • good-quality homes for rent
  • consistent and high standards of management
  • choice for the consumer.

The code is intended for use by landlords and lettings and management agents in the private rented sector (PRS).

Minor revisions were made to the code in July 2015 to reflect recent changes in legislation.
