First fine for Waltham Forest licensing

The first landlord has been prosecuted by Waltham Forest council for failing to obtain one of its 'Private Rented Property Licences'.

 The Private Rented Property Licencing scheme was introduced by Waltham Forest council last April.

The mandatory scheme covers all privately rented homes in the borough. 

Landlord, Coral Dawkins pleaded guilty to the charge of not having the required licence for a rental property in Leyton, despite the council sending her a number of warning letters. 

Thames Magistrates Court handed Dawkins £800 fine, costs of £637.31 and a victim surcharge of £80. 

A 5 year licence is £500 for a single dwelling.
