We have some exciting news to share with you. Lendology will be attending the EHN Conference 2023, which will be held today at The Studio, Cannon Street, Birmingham. This year’s conference promises to be the biggest and most informative yet, supporting local councils across the UK to turn empty properties into much needed homes.
Lendology will be participating in the Conference, with our Empty Homes Lead and Service Delivery Manager, Harriet Del Rey, and our newest Case Manager, Lee Plummer, attending the event. They are looking forward to engaging with industry professionals, gaining valuable insights, and sharing Lendology’s expertise in providing affordable and responsible finance to homeowners.
Empty homes have long been a pressing issue in our society, and Lendology has been working in partnership with local councils since 2005 to address the problem. We are proud to announce that our efforts have been recognised through the prestigious Empty Homes Network Awards 2023.
We are thrilled to have received the following accolades:
- Best Partnership Award: Empowering Communities and Bringing Empty Homes Back into Use (Highly Commended)
Our partnership with North Devon District Council, which began in 2005, has yielded exceptional results. Together, we have improved living standards for homeowners in the region, tackled long-term empty properties, enhanced accessibility, and increased energy efficiency. By prioritizing impact over profit, we have achieved a 100% satisfaction rate among partner councils. We are thrilled to have been highly commended for the Best Partnership Award, as it exemplifies the positive impact that can be achieved when organizations work together to tackle social challenges.
- Best Use of Media Award: Spreading the Success of Pow Property Ltd’s Renovation (Winners)
Lendology’s commitment to addressing empty homes extends to our effective use of media. Our video showcasing the success story of Pow Property Ltd’s renovation of a 200-year-old derelict property into a beautiful 8-bed HMO in Taunton perfectly exemplifies the Best Use of Media. Through this video, we highlight the journey of Pow Property and their collaboration with Lendology, showcasing the positive impact that can be made through our Empty Property Loan scheme. We are honored to have won the Best Use of Media Award, sponsored by Grafton Empty Homes Ltd., as it reflects our commitment to using media as a tool to promote the importance of bringing empty homes back into use and creating thriving communities.
- The Innovation Award (Nominated by Dorset Council): Dorset Council & Lendology CiC – Winners
We are delighted to have been recognized with The Innovation Award for our partnership with Dorset Council. This award highlights our innovative approach to tackling the challenges of long-term empty homes, particularly the successful transformation of 25 West Street in Blandford Forum. Through collaboration, funding, and strategic planning, we have brought this empty property back into use, providing affordable housing and contributing to the revitalization of the community.
We would like to express our gratitude to the Empty Homes Network for organising this esteemed conference and recognizing the efforts of organizations dedicated to addressing the issue of empty homes. We also extend our thanks to our partners, North Devon District Council and Pow Property Ltd., for their collaboration and support.
Today, on this exciting day of the conference, we celebrate these achievements and look forward to receiving the awards. Stay tuned for a detailed update on our blog, where we will share the highlights of the event and our journey in making a positive impact through empty home loans.
