Second national awards for HMO landlords launches

hmo awards 2023/24

The second national awards for HMO landlords has been announced by property management platform COHO chief Helen Turner (pictured), who is one of the driving forces behind its creation.

Due to take place in Spring next year, it has secured property finance firm Octane Capital as its main sponsor.

The awards, which were first held in 2022, were postponed earlier this year following a ‘tough decision’ prompted by choppy economic waters being navigated by many suppliers to the property industry.

But despite these economic pressures easing, Turner says the event will now take place on May 24th next year and award entrants will be able to enter their activities for both 2023 and 2024 when applying.

These awards will be hosted once again at Stowe School just outside Buckingham and, a well as the presentation to winners, the day will include networking events and TED-style talks by experts from the HMO sector.

600 people

Turner says she expects some 600 people to gather during the day including HMO property investors, landlords, managers and providers from across the supply chain with “an agenda to network, learn, celebrate, and grow”.

Eighteen awards will be up for grabs. To see the full list visit the organisation’s website. Those wishing to nominate people for an award have until 24th November this year to do so. Those submitting themselves have until 24th February next year.

Josh Knight (pictured), Sales & Marketing Director at Octane Capital says: “Supporting HMO investors has been at the heart of what we do since inception.

“Helping investors to acquire and convert properties into HMOs is the most common application of our refurbishment product, so this seemed like the perfect fit. We can’t wait to meet everyone attending the event in May.”
