A landlord and managing agent have been fined nearly £22,000 for leaving tenants with faulty electrics, no fire alarms and no glass in their windows.

 

 

The landlord, Mr Kuppusami Selvarajan, of Abbotswood Gardens, Ilford, was found guilty at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court and sentenced to pay an £8,500 fine.

The property managing agent, S3A Management, was ordered to pay a fine of £7,650. 

The defendants were also ordered to pay the council's legal costs of £5,773, bringing the total fines and costs to £21,923.

In cases like that the fine should be the entire value of the property. Slum landlords need to be seriously deterred from even considering that sort of activity.

Agreed. These rogue landlords need hitting much harder in the wallet.

Take his licence away. Banned for letting for life if you let a property with no smoke alarm.

Should have been a prison sentence.
