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.

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