Agent Membership Application

Please complete the boxes below to apply for your membership of PLuSS as a residential letting/managing agent. (To check if you need a different type of membership please visit this page.)

Let us know if you have any problems – we’ve tried to make it as straightforward as possible!

Membership fees are based on ownership of property in the PLuSS Priority Areas. So if you act only as an agent for properties in these areas, then you can join PLuSS without charge. However any owners of those properties that you manage within the Priority Areas should also join PLuSS and pay the membership fees.

It may be more practical in this case for you to pay the fees on their behalf (recharging the cost to them perhaps) and then they can join up here for free. (You can’t actually join on their behalf because they must each personally agree to the PLuSS T&Cs including the ‘fit and proper’ person test.)

In short, the amount you need to pay will be determined afterwards and we will contact you about it.

  • Any information you provide below may be shared with other PLuSS members and with Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council
  • The following bits of information that you provide will be published openly on this website: your First Name, Last Name, Trading Name, and Email
  • After you apply to be a member you need to provide Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council with details of the properties that you have responsibility for in the PLuSS Priority Areas – this information will not be held by PLuSS
