Islington additional licensing fines

A first  batch of landlords have been prosecuted following the extension of Islington Council's HMO licensing back in September. 

The Additional licensing scheme for Caledonian Road and Holloway Road requires all rental properties along those roads to be licensed.( not just Houses in Multiple Occupation of three or more storeys, with five or more tenants) 

Fines and legal costs were handed to the following unlicensed operators by Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court -
  • Nessfield Ltd, of Holloway Road, - total bill of £3,196.
  • Relocate You, of Royal College Street, Camden, to pay £6,190.
  • Juzar Jeevanjee, a landlord of Liverpool Road, to pay £4,648.
  • Tony Alan Estates Ltd of Plender Street, Camden, to pay £7,458.75.
  • Nicholas Simpson and Suzanne Simpson of Wincanton, Somerset, to pay £2200.
Islington’s director of public protection,  Jan Hart, commented: 

“Most landlords make sure they follow the law and licensing rules, but we will take action where landlords fail to do this.”
