Landlord self regulation scheme

We are currently experiencing problems with our online forms, please try again later. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. We are working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

The landlord self regulation scheme in partnership with the Humber Landlords Association aims to -

  • increase awareness among private landlords about how housing conditions can affect the health of their tenants
  • encourage private landlords to be proactive in improving standards in privately rented accommodation
  • reduce the need for enforcement action by the council
  • improve relationships between landlords and their tenants
  • improve housing standards in the private rented sector
  • reduce the number of people needing medical help because of injury or illness caused by poor housing conditions


You can apply to join our landlord self regulation scheme if you are a private landlord and a member of the Humber Landlords Association.

What happens next

We contact you within 14 days to confirm if you have been accepted onto the scheme.

If we receive details of any issue(s) regarding one of your properties, we pass this directly to you for you to deal with. 

You must carry out a full assessment of that property and take action to remove or alleviate the hazards. You must send us a copy of your assessment, giving details of the work you intend to carry out with timescales.

We inspect your property after the work has been completed. After that, we randomly inspect 10 per cent of all properties in the scheme each year.

If after inspection of your property we are unsatisfied, we provide you with further training and advice.
