About the Awards
The HullSTARS Awards are here to showcase the fantastic student landlords we have in Hull, and show off the best of the best of Hull's accommodation.
We’re celebrating the hard work and efforts of landlords across the city that give students the very best quality housing. These awards highlight those who go above and beyond to deliver an excellent experience for their tenants.
How to Enter
Entries are open to all HullSTARS registered landlords/managing agents. The submission is now open and will close at 5pm on Monday, 24th September 2018. Each category will be shortlisted and entrants notified of their shortlisting by Monday, 8th October 2018, with the winners being promoted at our annual Housing Fair (date TBC). Each award must have a minimum of three submissions in order to be awarded.
Only landlords who register for 2018/19 will be eligible for these awards, and only properties registered will be taken into consideration. Landlords on a biennial subscription may also apply.
Where the category mentions that review feedback will be considered, the quality of the review will need to be sufficient to justify awarding a winner as well as being published on the HullSTARS website as opposed to in a card or email format. If you are prompting your tenants to leave a review, it may be in your interests to ask them to say more than a few words.
Best Landlord or Managing Agent of the Year
The shortlist will be formulated based on scoring a landlords written submission, review feedback scores and audit scores for HullSTARS registered properties. From here the panel will make a decision on the overall winner.
Best Small Landlord of the Year
Recognising smaller landlords with fewer than 20 properties. The shortlist will be formulated based on scoring a landlords written submission, review feedback scores and audit scores for 2015/16 for registered properties. From here the panel will make a decision on the overall winner.
Accommodation of the Year
The shortlist will be formulated from the landlords written submission, review feedback scores and overall audit scores. This award will be given to a single property, and the written submission must make reference to this property specifically, not any other stock.
