The owners of a large HMO in London have been fined £13,500 after failing to repair multiple hazards within their property.

A series of Improvement Notices under the Housing Act 2004 were issued to the landlords in Haringey after severe hazards were identified throughout the property, including communal areas.

Additionally, four out of the eight flats within the property were found to be affected with damp and mould, posing significant health risks to those living the property.

Despite receiving multiple warnings, the landlords failed to take the necessary actions to address these issues. 

Their continued failure resulted in a Civil Penalty Notice totalling £13,500.

A Haringey council spokesperson says: “This case highlights the importance of maintaining safe living conditions for all residents.

“Our incredible enforcement team are working tirelessly to ensure landlords in Haringey meet their legal obligations.

“We will continue to take robust action against those who neglect their responsibilities and enforce the law to protect tenants’ rights and wellbeing.”
