An absentee landlord has been ordered to repay £19,958.84 in housing benefit for renting out five Salford houses without a licence. Dean Weinberg of Barnet, London, failed to obtain licences for the properties under the Charlestown and Lower Kersal licensing scheme introduced by Salford City Council in January 2011.

Mr Weinberg did not attend the hearing and the decision was made in his absence. The houses are still unlicensed and Salford City Council is considering further action.

Same guy I wonder? http://www.thisislocallondon.co.uk/news/londonnews/9556044.print/

This is what happens when successive governments have continued to outsource their basic housing obligations to spivs and charlatans for the past 30 years.

On the face of it sounds like he got the HB up front else why specifically fine him in HB terms This country's FUBAR!

Five houses. 5.

Didn't attend the hearing. Got my doubts the fine will ever be paid, or whoever brought the action will be able to recover the money by other means.

A thread from late last month I saw on Property Tribes.

Way are so many HMOs for auction in the Manchester area?

Looking at Edward Mellors lots for their next auction, there seems to be lots of HMOs, does anyone know what is going on?

Charging order on one or more of the properties, if all else fails.

Indeedy local councils have had this power for quite some time.

Can't be far off now where legislation will give them the power to seize and sell to recover costs. Taking their cut and passing costs ect on to the owner with what is left in much the same way as banks repossession procedure.
