On Friday 25th May, over 450 leading lettings agents from throughout the UK attended a glittering ceremony at The Lancaster London Hotel opposite Hyde Park where the winners of only dedicated awards for the lettings agency industry were revealed. The winners received their awards from former Olympic Champion, Sir Matthew Pinsent who wowed the audience with some incredible stories of his achievements.

The awards ceremony was the culminating event of a rigorous and thorough judging process carried out over a four-month period by a panel of industry experts who assessed initial entry submissions before conducting an extensive review of the entrants, which included hundreds of telephone interviews and mystery shopping exercises. The whole of the judging process was overseen by The Property Ombudsman; Christopher Hamer.

Now in its third year as a dedicated competition, these awards have become widely recognised as the most sought-after and difficult to win. With more entrants than ever before, over 5,000 offices were represented this year, but only the very best of the best were crowned as winners.

All the hard work and dedication by the staff has paid off and it shows that with the right focus and determination you can prosper despite all the doom and gloom in the media”

The UK LAP is not only there to recognise good landlords but also offers support and training to new landlords to ensure that they can build a successful and well run business, and give all of its members access to the latest legislation. We are delighted to be a sponsor of such a prestigious event and wish all the nominees the best of luck on the night.”

The Tenant Accreditation Scheme will also be launched which will advise tenants on how to be responsible residents. The benefits of gaining accreditation will make tenants more knowledgeable as to their rights and responsibilities, and, they will be more desirable to landlords as they will have shown their commitment to being ideal tenants.

The time is right to award professional landlords and agents and to encourage others to follow their excellent examples.

By supporting landlords the UK LAP enables them to provide good quality housing for their tenants with minimum intervention from the authorities.”
