The Best HMO Service Supplier Award recognises suppliers promoting excellence by providing services designed to make HMOs better and simpler for managers and housemates. Many property services are designed for single lets and don’t work well for HMOs, either in execution of the service, or in pricing model. 

This award, open to service suppliers, acknowledges the exceptional businesses providing services designed to cater specifically to the unique requirements of HMOs.
