Hounslow landlord not 'fit and proper'

A Hounslow landlord, Ifthikar Uddin has been banned from acting as a managing agent for any House in Multiple Occupation by Hounslow Council on the grounds that he is not a 'fit and proper' person.

The decision follows the inspection of two HMO's Ifthikar Uddin managed. The pair of rental properties were described as containing 'filthy bedsits' that were 'potential death traps'.

The properties managed by Uddin were damp, mouldy and dangerous. They failed to meet basic fire safety requirements, had dangerous boilers, unsafe electrics, and failed to meet fire safety regulations.

One property, a four bedroom house was found to have 16 people crammed into it.

Ifthikar Uddin is not new to the courts. He was company secretary of a letting agents, Key Property (UK), on Bell Road, Hounslow which was fined £42,500 back in September 2013 following 15 housing offences.

Hounslow Council leader Steve Curran said:  

"We will not tolerate rogue landlords in Hounslow. Where we have the evidence and power we will crack down hard on these parasites who are making profits from vulnerable people, often on sky high rents."
