Glasgow Landlord Banned For Keeping Deposits

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what the situation is is the rest of the UK these days, but in Scotland, tenants deposits now have to be held by a registered third party. Here's a landlord who's just been banned for keeping deposits, and also just for being generally unfit to be a landlord.

An "appalling" landlord who kept tenants' deposits worth almost £7,000 has been barred from renting out his property by Glasgow City Council.

Shaban Rehman was found to no longer be a fit and proper person to be a landlord or agent and has been removed from the private landlord's register.

The decision means he cannot let any of his eight flats - or 20 managed through his letting firm, Better Homes Glasgow.

Any attempt would be a criminal offence subject to a fine of up to £50,000.

Looks as if the ban's thoroughly deserved. It's good to see that just occasionally dodgy landlords can be sorted out.

So, admittedly not having read the article, presumably if he cannot let out ANY of his properties? Then they become a liability? Result? He would have to sell them???

More supply back on to the market -> reducing prices -> great for those who want to buy them to use as personal homes proper.

Only takes a few such cases, with resulting forced sales, and local markets see prices fall due to plentiful supply?

An added bonus also possibly being that parasites like this may well be forced to have to work like common folk to earn a living.
