    ""
    A London council’s fight against unfit rented housing has resulted in a single landlord being forced to submit 140 applications to prove his apartments are lawful accommodation.


    The extent of the continuing four-year battle between Islington council and Andrew Panayi, a multimillionaire landlord who owns 200 flats around Caledonian Road in north London, has been revealed by officials who told the Guardian that in one year they discovered 90 of his flats did not have adequate planning permission.


    Islington estimates investigations and official challenges to Panayi’s practices have cost council tax payers at least 170,000, with some cases taking up to two years to resolve. For a period of time one council planning officer was assigned no other work apart from investigating the landlord, it said."""

    I see Harpal Singh has been up to his old tricks again. The potential threat of 50k fine isn't enough.

    artful, Pixie, Cakeguts, may I just say all tenants should have LLs like you guys... And G_M, of course.

    If only landlords stuck to those British traditions of decency & fair-play: The complying with more than 100 laws & regulations may be harder, I'm sure I've slipped up somewhere some-time.

    If only agents, tenants, MPs etc etc stuck to those British traditions of decency & fair-play also.

    Best wishes to all decent members.

    Quite right too. He should be done for money laundering as well, if these rents are the proceeds of crime.

    A landlord must pay nearly 35,000 and could face jail after scaring students in a city house and saying he would wreck their careers.

    Did anyone see the article about the Scottish Landlord being sued?

    This isn't the only court case that vile landlord David Love from Edinburgh is facing. One of his tenants in Pilton were struggling to pay their full rent (they paid most of it). The gangster sent 3 goons to their door and slashed his face with a stanley knife. The victims partner was home with their young children at the time of the attack. Absolute vile human being.
