An unscrupulous landlord who failed to maintain his rental property, which included mould and a leaking toilet, has been prosecuted by Woking Borough Council.

Landlord Alan Kevin Fowler, of 22 Bainton Mead, Woking GU21 3LW, has been ordered to pay out a total of £8,432 for failing to carry out essential work despite being served two improvement notices.

When requested, Fowler failed to respond to a legal notice served under the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976 requiring him to provide information about the ownership and occupation of the accommodation.

He was found guilty on both accounts and fined £4,500 and ordered to pay £3,732.11 costs to Woking Borough Council, as well as a victim surcharge of £200.

New research has recently revealed that almost a quarter of buy to let landlords blame delays by tenants informing them about maintenance issues in their homes, which inevitably results in more costly repairs further down the line.

This is why The National Landlords Code of Excellence Ltd (NLCE) have launched a free Property Maintenance and Repair Report facility for private renting tenants, to help tackle the age-old problem of maintenance/repair issues. Click here to read all about it.
