Landlord Fine For 24 Tenants In One House = 10 Months Rent

Recommended Posts

Landlord fined £40,000 for cramming 24 tenants into one property

The landlord, Sarna, was hit with fines totalling £33,000 for overcrowding and fire safety offences.

He was also ordered to pay costs of £6,420 and a £120 victim surcharge, bringing the total fine up to £39,540.

Councillor Margaret McLennan, Brent council's deputy leader, added: "Mr Sarna had housed a family in the garden shed and had grossly overcrowded the two storey property, leaving tenants in an unsafe, damp and cockroach-infested house while taking £3,700 off them each month for the privilege."


So that is only about 10 months rent he'll pay as a fine. A classic example of crime does pay.
