BTL landlord ordered to pay more than £13k for fire …

A buy-to-let landlord in north London has been ordered to pay more than £13,000 after breaching fire safety regulations and failing to carry out necessary repairs at a property in Newington Green.

An environmental health officer inspected the flat on Petherton Road, N5, following complaints from a neighbour, and found four unrelated inhabitants sharing a kitchen and bathroom – making the property a house in multiple occupation (HMO).

The property also did not have a mains wired smoke alarm system, or a fire door to the kitchen, as required by HMO licencing. There was also a poorly repaired kitchen window.
