Rogue landlord fined £27k for unsafe HMO

Rogue landlord fined £27k for unsafe HMO An unscrupulous landlord has been fined £27,000 over an unlicensed HMO in Luton with multiple fire and safety breaches. ​

Luton Magistrates Court heard that the unlicensed property at 14 Kenneth Road, Luton, LU2, had poor fire alarm systems and blocked fire exits, missing and broken tiles on the roof, and evidence of rat infestation.

Marco Caruso of Verulam Court, Hendon, pleaded guilty to illegally managing a HMO and seven breaches of HMO regulation.

He was fined £27,000, which included a £170 victim surcharge and costs of £848.70.

Cllr Tom Shaw, portfolio holder for housing, commented: “This is a great result for the rogue landlord project [being operated by the council] and an excellent example of how we are working together to ensure that private housing in Luton is of a good standard.

“If an HMO is poorly managed, the tenant’s safety could be at risk.

“We are committed to identifying rogue landlords and making sure the properties they manage are in a good condition and adhere to safety regulations, or face prosecution.”

Help and support available for landlords paying tax and keeping records

Help and support available for landlords paying tax and keeping records The tax return deadline when filing your online Self Assessment for the tax year ending 5 April 2019 is less than a month away.

Filing an annual tax return is a necessary task for every self-employed person, including buy-to-let landlords, with the 31 January deadline for the 2018/19 Self Assessment tax return at midnight on 31 January 2020.

Whether you have just started out as a buy-to-let landlord or you are an established property investor, there is much to consider from a financial point of view.

Around 10 million people must complete a self-assessment tax form every year, typically because they are self-employed, run their own business or have untaxed income or capital gains, such as from a buy-to-let property, a trust or investment portfolio.

There is no need to fret over filing your tax returns, as it does not even require an accountant.

However, if you are concerned about going it alone and doing your own tax return, you may wish to check out HMRC’s ‘help and support for landlords’.

HMRC also offers online tax return help for landlords to their online series of help and support webinars.

  • Full planning for subdivision into 3 dwellings

Description

The property

The Elms dates from the 17th Century, was further extended during the 19th Century, and is Grade II Listed. It sits centrally within the village of Duston and in a conservation area. The house has been within the same ownership for 60 plus years and offers opportunities for interior remodelling and expansion with the potential to make a wonderful family home again.

The front door opens into a hall with a kitchen to the right and cloakroom to the left. Directly ahead is a large dining room which opens onto a drawing room. Both are impressive rooms, have parquet floor and an abundance of light. Running off the kitchen and connecting to the oldest part of the house is a breakfast room which provides access to the gardens. Beyond this is a run of rooms which include a study, shower room and bedroom. The original hall with front door lies beyond with the sitting room running off.

On the first floor, there is a run of five bedrooms, all of which have either fitted cupboards or walkin ones, as well as two bathrooms and a separate WC. On the second floor there are a further two bedrooms and a games room. Above the drawing room there is substantial and, potentially, usable loft space. This is accessed by stairs in the adjacent wood shed.

Outside

The house has three gated road entrances. Two from Millway, and one from the Main Road, which is the main entrance. This entrance leads, past a run of 7 garages arranged in an L shape, onto a gravelled driveway with a central roundel and flag pole. The garden wraps around the house to the north, east and south with only the original part of the house, to the west, abutting Millway. The garden’s perimeter is well planted with mature trees and shrubs providing excellent privacy.

Immediately to the south of the house is the more formal garden with a gravel and stone terrace running the length of that façade. To the south-east and overlooking the formal area, is a summer house constructed of stone with a pantile roof. Beyond are lean-to potting sheds and a kitchen garden, home to mature asparagus, raspberries, currants and gooseberries. Abutting this is an orchard of apple, pear and plum trees. A gravel drive running from the front of the house connects this area providing easy access for machinery.

In the south-east corner of the plot is a large grass
tennis court. To the north of this is a substantial kitchen garden. To the east of the garages is another orchard of apple and pear trees with a greenhouse & shed. In all, the plot amounts to about 1.8 acres.

Location

Duston, as a settlement, dates back to pre- Roman times, possibly even prehistoric times, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book.

Originally a farming community, and then integral to the local iron ore mining industry, it has been gradually enveloped by the expansion of Northampton.

Today’s Duston, which sits within a conservation area, still retains much of its original village character with a number of local shops and a community feel revolving around the St Luke’s Church and the Duston Village Hall.

Transport links are excellent with a short journey to Northampton station providing links into
London Euston, Birmingham and Rugby. Equally, the M1 motorway is just a short drive away.

Local schooling offers a myriad of options for children up to and including secondary age in its pre-schools, primary schools and secondary schools. Local private schools can be found at Quinton House, Northampton High School for Girls as well as Spratton Hall and Maidwell Hall preparatory schools.

Directions

From Junction 15a of the M1 take the A5123 into Northampton. After a mile, and on reaching a roundabout, go straight over following signs for the town centre and Sixfields along the A5076. Go straight over four more roundabouts following signs for Duston. 300m after the fourth roundabout, take a left along Main Road following signs for ‘Duston ¼ mile’. Follow Main Road around to the left and, on the left just before a mini roundabout with a war memorial set back to the left of them are the gates to The Elms.
