Massive £235,000 bill for agency boss letting out illegal bedsits

An east London landlord, who was also director of a letting agency, has been forced to pay out over £235,000 for letting out illegal bedsits following a successful Proceeds of Crime Application. 


Zoofshan Malik of Barking was ordered by a court to pay the massive sum after she initially pleaded guilty to letting unlawful flats at £2,850 per month in a breach of a planning enforcement notice, regarding an illegal extension.


Malik was letting out the four flats in sub-standard conditions through Emerson Knight Estates Ltd, of which she was a director.

The court recorder ordered Malik to pay the £222,000 Confiscation Order – under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 - in three months, or face two years’ imprisonment.

He also fined her £2,000 for the illegal extension, with three months to pay, or face 30 days in jail: Malik was also ordered to pay £11,649 in costs.

The proceeds of crime case was brought before the court after Barking and Dagenham Council argued the 47-year-old had benefitted from her offending following an earlier hearing on the illegal extension.
