Home Turf Lettings, DHI’s social lettings agency, has scooped Letting Agent of the Year award at the Bath Property Awards 2021.
Home Turf Lettings is a not-for-profit social enterprise specialising in letting affordable, private accommodation to tenants on low incomes and in housing need. Home Turf Lettings have housed over 300 people who would have been homeless or in unsafe housing since launching in 2012. The independent judging panel praised Home Turf Lettings for: ‘Providing vital housing security in social lettings for many at an unprecedented time of change.’
The Bath Property Awards are an annual celebration of Bath’s property sector and two members of the Home Turf Lettings team attended at the awards ceremony on Friday 22 October at the Apex City of Bath Hotel, joining a host of property professionals working in Bath.
Natalie Giles, Home Turf Lettings’ Service Manager, said: “Everyone involved with Home Turf Lettings are thrilled to have been awarded the Letting Agent Award in this year’s Bath Property Awards.
“DHI are renowned locally for their work supporting a wide range of people and it’s fantastic to be recognised for the work that we have done to open up the private rental market to local people in Bath. Last year we housed over 20 people in Bath facing homelessness, and have watched many of our tenants turn their lives around as a result of the accommodation we have been able to offer.”
