Hammersmith landlord fined

A London landlord, Royston Cooper has been fined nearly £30k for various breaches of the Housing
Act at a HMO in Hammersmith.

The fine breaks down into £15,000 for not having a HMO license, £5,000 for not maintaining the boiler,  £5,000 for not fixing a leaking soil pipe in the toilet, and another £3,000 for not responding to a request for information, court costs of  £2,160, and a victim surcharge of £120.

The five architectural students who were letting the property reported the landlord to Hammersmith and Fulham Council.

Cooper, 47, of Billingshurst, West Sussex failed to appear at Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court.
