      Did he not get what he deserved?? Other landlords spend thousands complying with the rules. No debate needed!

        The debate has already happened: In court: The Judge, quite rightly, decided he should be fined ££££££. End of...

        In this source...
        http://www.planningresource.co.uk/bu...anning-breach/
        it refers to 2 other similar cases...
        Following a joint investigation between Brent and the London Borough of Harrow, Vispasp Sarkari, of Ivanhoe Drive, Harrow, was fined £303,112 for converting four houses into 28 flats without permission.


        Earlier this month, Daniel William Beach Snr of Hurst Lane, Egham, Surrey, was ordered to pay a £250,000 confiscation order, following an investigation by Runnymede District Council.

        The council said Beach had failed to comply with an enforcement order and had breached planning permission on his farm "over many years" by using it unlawfully for commercial and industrial use.
        These rogue/criminal landlords think (thought??) they are/were above the law & AFAIAC got what they deserved... they also make life harder for the honest decent landlords amongst us from the suspicion & checking up & extra regulation needed because of the bad 'uns..

        IMHO, well done Brent C & Runnymede council!!!
        I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

            The first went to appeal and won as far as I remember.
            The second: rules is rules! you build it and get away with it for 4 years and noone complains hey presto they can't make you pull it down! Similar thing with change of use: do something you don't have planning for over 10 years, be able to prove it and noone complains, hey presto, you can get planning! That's how it works.
            I don't know if I agree with straw bale man's fate though: I think hiding it is against the spirit of the law!

              Landlords do spend thousands complying with rules. This one didn't but the council who enforce such rules were happy with the council tax

                Did the judge sign the order? or is this just an administration process?
