Emily. Fair enough if it was a rogue LL but I don’t know that, people are convicted every day for any amount of breaches in any walk of life. I don’t see them being automatically labelled as Rogues. Well you say it sounds like a big extension no need to judge it like that, the photos of the property are splashed all over media so you can see it’s a normal semi-detached with side and rear extensions like dozens of others locally in Wembley planning permission or not, it certainly no monstrosity like some of the one the Council have given permission for, that said it should have had permission but that don’t make it look any worse. Regarding the fine being too low there is no such thing any fine is too much you seem be be under the illusion that there a gravy train out here, do the figures, try buying a property pay the Mortgage, pay for all the costs that has been loaded on in recent years DEICR, Gas, HOW TO RENT, RIGHT TO RENT Deposit debacle, Section 24, etc I won’t bore you with the list, just add Licensing, pay maintenance, absorb fees, pay for furniture & white goods, Contracts, Insurance, Accountancy, all the incidentals, maybe 40% tax on the remnants. Where’s the honey pot just give us a Penalty (large) on top for good measure for being so stupid to put a roof over people’s heads to live in comfort, at no cost whatsoever for Government all the finance and labour off our own backs, maybe better leave them on the Streets everyone so thankless. Sorry Emily for the rant but its true, nothing personal I tell it how it is, Good afternoon.

No Daddy, don’t agree before Section 21 was interfered with by Shelter mostly and others Tenants behaved because they knew you could do something about it if they didn’t. So we didn’t have those current problems like sub-letting over crowding etc, just because you let individual rooms and have rights to access you can’t have any of the above plus other LL’s using Agents for HM0’s mostly now to Digital Academic parading as Companies, the LL gets his money alright but they make as much more subletting not complying with the rules, usually short let’s AirBnB type or taking single shares off the Council. The Council loves this fraudulent activity it suites them do they call it R2R ?. I know Alacia is right it will save the Council fortunes without S.21 Tenants can’t be turning up at Civic Centres with their Court Order to be housed guaranteed we’ll be stuck with them. We had those White Papers & Green Paper before you were a LL Daddy when Sir George Young was Minister bless him in the process of introducing S.21 or any of you wouldn’t be LL’s, where were you or the letting Agents before that, weren’t there no such thing only a handful in London which is why we have S.21. I urge LL’s not to be taken-in we didn’t want HMO’s either in the first place it was forced upon us, it suites Daddies dividing property into cubicles incl’ sittings rooms to let to individuals for maximum profit not my way, it’s a kin to bedsits of the 1960’s. M Foley LL 43 years.

Sorry I don't agree with this completely at all probably another miscarriage of justice ? if we have any Justice anymore from what I seen with the traffic money boxes in London. I think the Tenants are as much to blame as the LL' here, the fine should be halved and the Tenants fined the other £24k. The Council says they made Regular inspections, the Article gives the impression it was like years when in fact it was over a 4 month period so why not simply say how many visits they made, economic truth. OK LL should have Supplied them with a Tenancy agreement. Should have had Gas Certificate. Should have had working Fire Detection system, However they didn't say if it had been interfered with. Obstruction of Fire Escape that will be the Tenants clutter. Broken Bannister who broke it did LL come in & break it. About the lighting on the Stairs was it natural light or artificial if so who paid for leci, trip hazard might be stair Carpet coming loose from misuse (assumed). Provide clean a home were the Tenants reared ? we don't run a Nursery. Woefully Hygiene conditions, they were living like pigs so say its LL's fault & Council backs them up. We are being fed half a story again by the beneficiaries of Court Proceedings. Final comment the same for all local Authorities through out the Land, sending a clear message to all LL's ? we'll never be classed as anything else other than Rogues LL's. How is LL supposed to carry out improvements when it full of filthy people & their clutter ?.

Its worth pointing out there was hardly any person over weight back then, not like I read other day 68% Obese some young persons can barely move, maybe I shouldn't say so but it true. The real problem with housing recently is smaller LL are being driven out deliberately by over the top onerous compliance designed for that purpose, its reaching the point where its not viable. The real reason they want us out is not what the Chancellor said, he said he wants all young renters to be property owners which is very noble of him if were true, what he really wants is our young renters (out tenants) is to buy the tens of thousands of Concrete Frame High Rise tin clad over priced unsuitable Flats (already built in London & everywhere else) to achieve this he gives them free loans, incentives and SDLT exemption, virtually no Deposit, for now to rope them in, then pay for a lifetime (life sentence) Mortgage 35 years now some doing 40 years but not to look after their best interest, its the opposite its because he wants them to buy the properties to make billions for his friends the Big Developers, also can you not see so many major Organisations, Insurance Companies, a host of Big Co's, Institutions investing now and not least Lloyds Bank going to be a major player providing Flats to Rent, even buying a rafts of New Flats in several Towns for letting, excuse me didn't they say Private Buy 2 Let LL's were buying up the properties preventing young from from getting on property ladder, so now when its the Big Boys doing the same thing, its quite acceptable and what the Country needs they take us / the Public and young buyers for right mugs.

David, my friend would you like to have someone else in charge of your money or your property that you own, to be in control of it and do what they like with it ? in that case why would you do anything even go work. Yes David I was a model Tenant always paid my way always got my Deposit back didn't expect to get 3 times my deposit back or want free renting, yes its been a while since renting guess what no one gave me rights to their property, grants or freebies. I had to work hard and save every penny I could and still couldn't find what I considered value for money so I bought a Plot in Ealing in 1972 and built the house by my own hand, with no help from anyone, Dad RIP so no Mam & Dad piggy Bank, no Google to ask a question, no electric on site, cordless not invented, try it some time see how you get on, incidentally I still have the House and don't feel like giving it away or full control of it to some one just because they think they should have it. Renting was a bit different then, no Bathroom, Public Baths, outside Toilet, no Electric sockets, no TV, no Central heating, no 2 months Notice, no 6 months notice, no Benefit system pay for you, no question not pay won't pay, your Suit- Case waiting outside the door for you no messing. When you have worked for 58 years mostly 7 days a week, pay taxes through the nose and now clobber more than ever, then you can tell me how hard done by you all are or alternatively try grab other peoples property for nothing. Sorry to disappoint you I am now a model LL.

Well I know my way around Auction Houses having first bought there in the Connaught rooms in Holborn in 1972, can be risky at times, unlikely to get a loan without committing another property dangerous territory in London. Have to know about property, know your market watch out for the sharks. Sometimes a cartel of Asians working to together unless you are a regular you will not know they don't bid against each other but might you up for one of their friends, and the owner can bid on his own property is allowed and often he or his friend does, you will also have the Bowler Hats from Golders Green to take into Account. Those days they didn't have to Register to Bid and sometimes there would be a runner I have seen that too, probably the owner giving someone a few quid to bid it up but if unlucky and it fell to him he would disappear in the crowd, other times the Auctioneer would be taking bids off the wall as we used to call it (pretend Bids). I have seen Portfolio Holder just buy anything when the market was rising it was no difference whether it was half derelict, that why most of them are in the Auction, to them just write the Cheque, because next year it was worth more but you can get that out of your head those days, in that situation I have walked away from Auction went into Estate Agent & bought a House on the way home that I had previously looked at and better value. I had time on my side a couple of months to Complete and Surveyor to ask questions, not panicked to 14 or 28 days to completion by the drop of the gavel.

Hi Pat , fair play to you for your hard work, just in case of any misunderstanding I never suggested it would cost £50k, that was never a cost its money from Heaven for the Council they just collect. I have been through several properties and done the necessary and know the cost too well including £1300 application fee the tip of the ice berg, but not just once on same property 2006, 2011, 2016 & now due again and that's just one, that goes for every property then there the extra kitchen sink in the same kitchen, the double Range cooker they required me to put in & replaced 3 times £1k a throw, the extractor hood alone for this is £400. the hard wired fire alarms in every room not just Halls & landings, the Emergency lighting in Halls And Landings, the electric up dating comply with EICR, Certificates for all those things again & again, remove the 90 beautiful hardwood mahogany doors I had and throw away that I had to replace and replace personally with compliant Rubbish Fire Doors and carry most up stairs, When you have swung 90 fire doors let me know how you feel and the cost, they hardly fit to hold the screws, alter the frames complete with stops, seals, door closer's, special locks with thumb screw operation from inside so no one gets locked inside, door furniture. yes they were inspected and I did the Work, paid for the work and paid the Council for the work that I did, the Council din't have anything to do. I am so sorry for ever being a LL , what for to finance the roof over other peoples heads, to subsidize their Rents by Statute , to pay tens of thousands income tax each year, to be treated as a second class citizen and my profession Criminalized.
