Prosecuted landlords forced to go on ‘recognised landlord training’

Directors of the company owning the property were issued with a Financial Penalty Notice for the offence totaling £1,898.73 after an inspection found the property housing five tenants had been an unlicensed HMO since at least 2018, meaning it was potentially unsafe for the tenants living there.An inspection of the second house found it was housing seven tenants and had been an unlicensed HMO since at least 2014.

Again in July the landlord was issued with a Financial Penalty Notice for the offence totalling £3,535.89.

Following a further inspection of a third property the council found it had not been licensed since October 2018. The landlord was issued with a Financial Penalty Notice for the offence totalling £2,549.65.

The necessary mandatory HMO licences have now been granted with an additional condition requiring the owners to undertake recognised landlord training within six months.
