The aims of RLA Co-Regulation Scheme (Liverpool)

Welcome to the RLA Co-Regulation Scheme (Liverpool), providing landlords with property in the Liverpool area to meet the requirements of Liverpool City Council's citywide licensing scheme.

In recognition of RLA members' commitment to good practice, Liverpool City Council has authorised the RLA to be an official Co-regulation partner, offering all RLA Co-regulation members up to 50% off all license fees (excluding HMO Licences).

For further information on the benefits of the scheme, please see Why Join?

How does it work?

As a landlord you should have registered for a license with Liverpool City Council. If you have not yet done this, please do so immediately.

Before completing your Liverpool Landlord Licence application, you need to have successfully joined both the Residential Landlords Association and the RLA Liverpool Co-Regulation Scheme in order to be considered for licence discount - discounts can not be applied retrospectively.

You will need to be able to supply your unique RLA Liverpool Co-Regulation Scheme membership number on your application for licences to Liverpool City Council Licensing Team for consideration for the discount at outset.

Once you receive your notification from the council you should:

Step 1: Register with the RLA Co-regulation Scheme and submit your property information, once payment has been set up, you will receive your scheme ID
Step 2: Now you have your RLA Co-Regulation scheme ID, you can complete your license application and claim your discount.


The RLA Co-Regulation scheme are working with Consider-Rate to give you some benefits during the licence period.

Consider-Rate is a private review site for the PRS only. (Not open to the public)


Consider-Rate was designed by landlords, agents and tenants to give advantages to all parties. It follows the Code of Practice principles and conforms to the Data Protection Act 1998.

Landlords and Agents have increased responsibility within the PRS, especially now in Liverpool. Using Consider-Rate will also encourage tenants to take up some of that responsibility too.

Designed to give better in depth information and feedback from Landlord to Tenant and vice versa Considerate will allow everyone to make better informed rental decisions and by doing so reduce their risk.

For further information please visit Consider-Rate's Liverpool Co-Regulation Signup page or email

There is a very small monthly fee per property for Consider-Rate and all RLA members will enjoy a 50% discount on that fee. Also, as this is new to Liverpool, no one will pay any fee whatsoever until there has been a viable size database created. This equates to 25 Liverpool Letting Agent branches (approx 10,000 tenants to start) of which the response has been very very positive.

You will be able to enjoy unlimited tenant reviews to help you find responsible tenants.
