A GOOD landlord award scheme is being set up by the University of York, York St John University and other higher education institutions to recognise and celebrate student ‘landlordship’ across the city.

Organisers say student landlords and letting agents will be nominated by their tenants and shortlisted by a panel of local housing experts and student representatives for a range of awards such as Best Value for Money, Most Responsive Landlord, Best Quality Property, Best Landlord (Small, Large and Letting Agent) of the Year, and an Outstanding Service Award.

They said the the awards would be presented to winning landlords at an invitation-only event during York Housing Week in early November.

For more information, go to studentcommunitypartnership.org/good-landlord-awards.

Student landlords can email a request for an advertising pack to print and display in their student homes to get nominations rolling in.

Hmm , interesting why not then have a tenant scoring system ?
Oh yes that would be blacklisting, cant do that so lets turn it round and rearrange the wording and do it to landlords.
This couldn't possibly be because the York council landlord scheme has crashed...no surely not .

The universities had a very good system of collating good standards with full cooperation of landlords. This has folded with the NEW system of all landlords registering with the council "Voluntary registration" ? well amazingly very few volunteered despite the free for a year offer.
I get the impression the council is not to be be trusted ! I wonder why.
