The 2023 Rate Your Landlord winners were announced at the awards ceremony at Leeds University Union last night. It was great to be able to celebrate Leeds’s exemplary student landlords together for another year.
Martin Blakey, Unipol’s Chief Executive, introduced the event by giving an update on how Rate Your Landlord has developed since its launch in 2016 and thanked all nominees for their dedication to providing well-managed, safe, and comfortable student accommodation. This was the 7th Rate Your Landlord Awards ceremony, and this year over 950 reviews were submitted to the Rate Your Landlord website!
This year’s new student Exec Teams at LUU and LBSU hosted the evening and had the pleasure of announcing the winners of each category. Winners were decided based on the overall score they received in their individual category.
