The second episode of Channel 5’s Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords, due to air tomorrow evening at 9pm, will feature three separate landlords all facing financial ruin as a result of rogue tenants.
One strand of the show will follow builder Franc Coutinho, who has been renting his property out in North London for six years without a problem until his latest tenant moves in. Within six weeks, problems with paying the rent begin, with the tenant reporting allegedly false problems with the boiler to justify not paying rent.
Despite numerous visits by plumbers to the property, when rent was due, the boiler mysteriously stopped working. Unable to take anymore and facing financial ruin, the eviction process begins through Landlord Action.
