Do you have a great landlord, who always responds to you when needed? Or maybe you have a landlord who has really helped you to settle into your property? If so, consider nominating them for a Landlord Award. Any landlord registered with the Student Housing Office is eligible to receive an award!
Your Students’ Union, Undeb Bangor, wants to celebrate the work and effort put in by landlords across Bangor, who provide students with high quality housing.
You are able to nominate your landlord for an award across three different categories.
- Value Deal of the Year - A reasonably priced house, when considering the facilities and location of the property. It is also important that the house includes everything that was promised in the contract! We aren't looking for a specific price range here, we would just like you to decide whether you are getting value for money.
- Responsive Landlord of the Year - Does you landlord always respond to your concerns and requests, in a reasonable period of time? If unavoidable emergencies occur (power cut, the washing machine stops working, you lose your key etc.), it is important that the landlord is on hand to respond. If this has been the case for you, then consider your landlord for this award.
- All Rounder Award - Has your landlord gone above and beyond to make you feel welcome and supported in your house? This award takes your whole experience of living in your property into account. In an ideal world, every students would be able to say that their landlord is always helpful, and treats them like a guest, rather than 'just another tenant'. If you feel you have experienced this, then you should nominate your landlord for this award.
This year, your Students’ Union has been committed to helping you find suitable accommodation.
Our house reviewing campaign, which has been set up through us working in partnership with Marks Out Of Tenancy, allows students to review their house, based on the landlord, estate agent, location, and standard of the property itself.
The Landlord Awards build on this campaign, by recognising those landlords who go the extra mile for their students.
Mark Barrow, Vice President for Education, said: ‘’These Landlord Awards are a fantastic way for students to express their appreciation for their landlords.
‘’Although moving, and settling, into a house can be a really stressful experience, landlords can make students feel at home. It is important that we recognise that.’’
