LandlordBC’s Certified Rental Building program (CRB) is a nationally recognized quality assurance program designed to assist renters to easily identify well-run, well-managed rental properties. The CRB designation means that rental property management companies and their staff have compliance with 50 Standards of Practice including training and education programs. LandlordBC launched CRB in British Columbia just over 2 years ago and we continue to successfully grow the program across the province
For a property to be designated as a Certified Rental Building, it must meet mandatory requirements in five key areas. These requirements address standards relating to resident management, human rights management, building management, financial management and insurance, energy conservation and sustainability.
The main goal of the CRB program is to build consumer confidence and elevate rental-building standards to make rental housing in the province better for everyone. The CRB program provides mean peace of mind for renters knowing that when they rent in a CRB building they will receive both quality housing and service.
For rental housing providers the benefits of the CRB program are also significant. Not only will they have better run buildings and happier renters, but the program will also help landlords grow their business and have a better, more professional relationship with renters and their own employees alike.

A building that is certified with CRB will have undergone a third-party audit by J.D. Power and Associates to ensure that the building and company staff are adhering to legislative requirements and are providing a quality product and quality service. Similar to a star rating in hotels, the CRB checkmark can provide existing and prospective tenants with peace of mind when selecting a place to live.
