Portfolio holder for Housing, Councillor Sally Beardsworth said: “We are absolutely thrilled to receive commended finalist status. The competition was really tough, so this accolade really is testament to the hard work and commitment of everyone at Northampton Borough Council. This achievement has really spurred us on and we will continue to build on our expertise and deliver high quality levels of service across the private rented sector.”
Oliver Romain, editor of Landlord & Buy-to-Let magazine and lead judge for the Awards, said: “The Landlord & Letting Awards are the premier nationwide private rented sector awards in the UK, and it’s great to be able to recognise and reward the best in the industry. This year’s response was phenomenal, with over 550 entries received, so Northampton Borough Council has done brilliantly to win a commendation.”
