Warnings to Landlords of HMOs

If you have seen my previous blogs you will have noted a few cases against landlords of HMOs - well there have been some more cases through the Courts.

Mohammed Mir was fined £3500 for keeping properties in a substandard state and illegally dumping rubbish in the garden.

Nadia Boudjema was fined £4000 + costs of £1180 after he failed to install a fire alarm following a Council inspection.

Ozay Haz was fined £2000 for failing to deal with damp at a property.

Mezhut Bano was fined £2000 + costs of £947 for letting properties of poor standard.

Finally, Yousef Mohammed was fined £1000 for letting a HMO without a licence.

It would seem that Local Authorities are taking their duties seriously under the HMO requirements.

As I have advised previously, if you have a HMO or are converting a property into HMO please ensure that you contact your Local Authority to find out what the requirements are, and then ensure that you comply with these requirements.
