A rogue landlord who squeezed 15 people into a modest home in west London has been ordered to pay more than £430,000.
Gurdeep Kaur, 47, was handed the confiscation order after she converted her house in Hillingdon without planning consent.
Tenants lived in cramped conditions with at least one tenant living in an outbuilding at the property in First Avenue, UB10.
The decision by immigration officers and council planning enforcement staff to raid the property followed a two-year investigation.
At Isleworth crown court, Kaur was ordered to pay £406,712 and a £20,000 fine for the planning offence.
In addition, the council was awarded more than £4,000 in prosecution costs.
