Hertfordshire landlord fined £500

A Hertfordshire landlord has been fined £500 after not getting the heating fixed at her rental property.

Despite receiving an enforcement notice, landlord Jane Cleverly, left her rental flat in Heathfield Road, Hitchin without any working heating.

Ms Cleverly claimed that her own ‘financial difficulties’ had prevented her from getting things fixed, if so, the £500 fine, £50 victim surcharge, and £794.57 costs are not going to help her situation.

Councillor Bernard Lovewell, commented on the case -

“We hope this prosecution sends a clear message to private landlords in North Hertfordshire – the council will use enforcement powers whenever necessary to ensure the welfare and safety of our residents.”
