The 2021 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, in person, after what has been a difficult year for all – especially small businesses.
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 in the face of adversity over the past year and a half. A new award has been added this year to recognise those who have gone above and beyond.
