PAL is a landlord and property accreditation scheme that aims to improve the standard of privately rented accommodation in Welwyn Hatfield.

The free and voluntary scheme is open to landlords and agents to enable tenants to identify properties in the borough that are well managed, and in good repair and ensure that, as tenants, they are being treated fairly by landlords and agents.

Founded by Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council and the University of Hertfordshire, the scheme gives tenants peace of mind that their rental accommodation is safe and compliant whilst enabling them to share the benefits of competently managed and well maintained properties.
