Huge fine for repeatedly ignoring rental licensing laws

A landlord has ended up with fines totalling over £90,000 after repeatedly ignoring a council’s selective licensing regime.

Stephen Ige pleaded guilty to knowingly letting three properties in the Brent area of north London without a licence.

He was ordered to pay a £25,000 fine for each of the unlicensed properties, £5,000 for failing to supply documents to the council when requested, and £10,763 in court costs to the council, totalling £90,863 including a victim surcharge.

Ige, who owns a number of properties in Brent, had previously been found to have illegally let out two other properties requiring licences. 

He was fined £5,000 and warned to make sure he applied for property licences where required, but continued to ignore the law.
