This year, the Customer Scrutiny Inspection (CSI) Awards has introduced two new awards for landlords, which will be decided by tenants’ votes.
The awards consist of two broad categories: Best UK Landlord and Resident Involvement Champion (for landlords who show exceptional commitment to and support for tenant and resident involvement). Awards will be made to three landlords in each of these categories, based on size of their stock.
Linda Levin, chair of the CSI awards judges’ panel explained: “I am delighted that this year we are giving tenants the chance to tell us who they think should be recognised. I don’t think this has been tried before, so it’s a bit scary! But that’s no reason not to give it a go! I really do hope that tenants across the land join in and vote if they think their landlord is providing excellent tenant focused services and is committed to tenant empowerment.
“In my book, tenants are the best judges of the landlord awards, not me, as they are on the receiving end of their landlords’ services. Many tenants have already cast their vote, but it would be great if more landlords could inform their tenants about this opportunity.”
The closing date for votes is midnight on 31 August 2015.
