Short Term Accommodation Association

Safe, Clean and Legal™

The STAA has appointed Quality in Tourism (QIT) to carry out accreditation for properties operating in the homestay environment. Accreditation is annual to ensure consumers are protected and properties are fit for purpose.

For hosts

The accreditation is straightforward and requires operators to complete an online application form, make payment and email copies of insurance documents to Quality in Tourism. QIT will then organise for an assessor to visit the property to make checks before awarding a Safe, Clean and Legal™ accreditation for 12 months if you pass.

For agencies

Via partnership with the STAA, QIT is working with agencies to assure the quality of their hosts and is used as an impartial benchmark to validate your operators. Some STAA partner agencies are making accreditation mandatory and we are working together to incorporate the accreditation fee into your fee for operators, while for others we provide scheme overviews and information which can be supplied to hosts to apply directly.

In the Media

Take a look at the recent press article in the Evening Standard relating to the Government-backed scheme launching next month which will allow short-let hosts to apply for national accreditation, as the industry attempts to stamp out unscrupulous landlords.
