A Room With No View?

A recent prosecution reported in UK Landlord’s Magazine concerned a £32,070 fine for a Landlord who rented his House of Multiple Occupancy (HMO) and offered every room in the property as a bedroom, except for the kitchen and one bathroom. One tenant was renting a room with a ceiling that was less than four feet from the floor! Combined with no smoke alarms, fire doors and blocked fire exits the landlord was in breach of 17 HMO regulations.
