Rate Your Landlord Awards – a big success for Liberty Prospect Point, Liverpool
It has been announced that student residence Liberty Prospect Point, operated by Liberty Living, has been ranked as the number one for ‘Top quality accommodation’, ‘Best value for money accommodation’ and ‘Best halls’ in Liverpool's ‘Rate Your Landlord’ survey carried out by Liverpool Students’ Union for 2014.
Liverpool’s annual Rate Your Landlord Awards evening took place on the 16th May 2014 at the Radison Blu Hotel, Liverpool.
The Awards were attended by a diverse selection of individuals and representatives from Liverpool City Council, Liverpool Student Homes, accommodation providers and students' unions.
The Awards evening kicked off with a speech from LiverpoolSU Vice President Community Engagement, Dan Cole, who spoke about the successes of this year’s survey and the importance of improving accommodation for students:
"This has been the 4th year that we’ve have been running the survey and year on year the survey has been improving. Last year Curtis led the community department to achieve a fantastic response rate, with over 2000 individual students completing the survey.
"Coming into the role last year, I wanted to take Rate Your Landlord to the next level and set ourselves an ambitious target of gaining 3000 responses, and I’m proud to say this year’s response rate was an amazing 3262!"
He went on to say that "the main purpose of the Rate Your Landlord Survey is to ensure accommodation standards for students across Liverpool continues to improve year on year. This is why last year we made a particular effort to visit providers to discuss their individual feedback face to face."
In total 3262 students casted their votes for a variety of award categories.
Neil Ellis, Regional Manager for Liberty Living said:
”Congratulations to General Manager Dennis Riley and his team at Liberty Prospect Point who have worked very hard to create a quality product for our students. This was a very decent treble and I am personally delighted to wrestle the top award from Victoria Halls!’’
