Buy to let investor guilty on 18 HMO charges and gets big fine

A landlord has been ordered to pay more than £17,000 in fines and costs after pleading guilty at St Albans Magistrates' Court to 18 charges relating to a house in multiple occupation.

Akintude Akinyemi, 49, of Borehamwood was ordered to pay £11,214, plus a victim surcharge of £62, and Welwyn Hatfield council was awarded costs of £6,000.

The charges relate to a property in Hatfield and included failure to licence a HMO, failure to maintain fire safety precautions, failure to provide safety documents and failure to keep the property in a good state of repair.

"Everyone should feel confident when renting a property in our borough and it's important we send a clear signal to a small minority of landlords not taking their responsibilities seriously” says a spokeswoman for the council.

"Housing management regulations are there for a very good reason. That is why our top priority will always be to maintain standards and keep people safe” she adds.
