17 tenants share a 3 bed house in Brent

Brent Council report finding seventeen men renting a 3 bedroom terraced house in Kingsbury area.

The 3 bedroom house in multiple occupation was described by council officers as somewhat 'cramped'

The property was also found to have no working hot water and no heating, in poor repair, with grimy mattresses filling small rooms shared by as many as five men.

Unsurprisingly, the kitchen was filthy.

The tenants claim they club together their share of the £1200 per month rent in cash, which is then passed on to the landlord by a head tenant.

This 'head tenant' now faces prosecution proceedings. 

Brent Council is following a more pro-active  campaign to disrupt illegal lettings to help reduce the impact of substandard, squalid and overcrowded accommodation on  tenants' lives and those of their neighbours.

Brent landlords can apply for their license or if you wish to report illegal rental property in Brent email or call 020 8937 2384/5.
