OFFA, the property management and lettings specialist which is part of the North Wales' Pennaf Housing Group, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Public Service – Not For Profit category of this year’s prestigious Landlord & Letting Awards.

Oliver Romain, editor of Landlord & Buy-to-Let magazine and lead judge for the awards, said they are the premier nationwide private rented sector awards in the UK and it is great to be able to recognise and reward the best in the industry.

“The awards receive industry wide support and grow year on year, and it is encouraging to see so many companies and individuals wanting to take part, many even striving throughout the year to further increase their chances of  winning,” he said.

“This year’s response was phenomenal with more entries than ever received across the various categories, so Offa has done brilliantly to be shortlisted.”

Carla Joyner, professional lettings expert with the Offa team, said: “We are thrilled to be a finalist. It really is testament to our hard work and commitment.

“We are now just keeping our fingers crossed that we are lucky enough to walk away with a winner’s trophy on the night.

“Offa has a strong sense of social responsibility and works closely with colleagues at Clwyd Alyn Housing Association to provide accommodation to former homeless residents moving on from Supported Living Schemes.

“We also work in partnership with local authorities in North Wales offering expertise in helping to manage private sector homes in multiple occupation.”

The winners for each category will be announced at a gala dinner at Stoneleigh Park in Coventry during the Landlord and Letting Show on Wednesday, November 26.
