Fenland District Council’s housing penalty is upheld following failed appeal by landlord

A £4,550 fine issued by Fenland District Council on a Wisbech landlord for housing offences has been upheld after an appeal.

The landlord appeal to a tribunal after the council served five Civil Penalty Notices on him earlier this year for failing to rectify a number of safety hazards at a block of flats he owned.

The notices were served under new powers granted to local authorities in 2017, which allow the council to issue penalties up to a maximum of £30,000 for certain housing offences as an alternative to prosecution.
