Melanie Dirom, Croftons’ Partner and Head of Housing Management, has been shortlisted for a prestigious Women in Housing Award.
Melanie (pictured below) is a finalist in the ‘Consultant of the Year’ category, which recognises the work of professionals and expert advisers who support housing providers throughout the UK.
In this category the judges were looking for exceptional individuals who make “a crucial contribution in housing” and who have “a great relationship with the organisations they work for, and can demonstrate real results.”
The Women in Housing Awards, now in their sixth year, aim to recognise and celebrate the achievements of “outstanding women” working in housing, and are run in partnership between Inside Housing and the Chartered Institute of Housing.
“Melanie is one of the UK’s pre-eminent housing management and tenancy enforcement lawyers, and a trusted legal adviser to our housing clients nationwide,” said Croftons’ Managing Partner, Simon Leighton.
“Melanie helps our clients find positive solutions to contentious tenancy issues, advising on matters including anti-social behaviour, disrepair, possession proceedings, and bringing cases to the residential property tribunal, often involving complex human rights and equality issues, and significant reputational risk. Winning this award would be fantastic recognition of her expertise, experience, and track record of delivering successful outcomes for clients.”
Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Manchester on 11 October. Watch this space and keep your fingers crossed for Melanie!
