MyPlace in Preston has won the Student Landlord of the Year title in the Landlord and Lettings Awards, beating nationwide competition.  

The awards, first set up in 2009, aim to recognise and reward excellence and contribute to raising standards across the UK private rented sector.

MyPlace in Preston is a family-run business, established by husband and wife team Paul and Madeleine Livesey.

The firm has been running for over 20 years offering high quality private and student accommodation situated around The University of Central Lancashire campus and Preston city centre.

Paul said today: “We are absolutely thrilled to win this award. The competition was really tough, so this accolade is testament to the hard work and commitment of our great team.

“Winning 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 and, hopefully, be recognised for our achievements again next year.”

The firm uses Hallidays accountants of Stockport.

Paul thanked them for their continued support and their role in the company’s success.

Hallidays director Paul Whitney said: “It comes as absolutely no surprise that Paul and Maddy have achieved this award.

“MyPlace is truly a forward thinking, market-leading student and shared accommodation provider.

“I recall student concerns about worn and stained carpets, mould and wondering whether the house would have a TV aerial… these days it’s high spec décor, flat screens, Sky TV, WiFi and Xboxes all the way! ”
