Legendary south of England landlord Fergus Wilson is reported to have been arrested after a dispute in which he allegedly called someone a “petty little Hitler.”
Kent Online, in a brief report, says Wilson - who was once regarded as the UK’s richest landlord with hundreds of buy to lets in his portfolio - claim that Wilson was seen with a council worker before being spotted with police.
Wilson himself says he was arrested but released without charges and he claims his comments had not been racist.
The landlord told the publication: "Words were exchanged - he alleged I punched him but there is no corroborative evidence.”

Three years ago Wilson have an interview to our sister publication Letting Agent Today - you can see that here.
Wilson and his wife Judith managed their own properties - all in and around Kent - until the year 2000, at which point they instructed agents.
In the late 2010s they said they started selling some of their buy to lets and in late 2018, during a court appearance over a dispute with a disabled tenant, Judith Wilson said she still had a portfolio of some 300 units around Maidstone.
In June of last year the business online publication Insider Media put the couple’s joint wealth at around £140m.
