Rogue landlord fined for illegal extension

A landlord has been fined £24,000 for housing tenants in an illegal extension.

Mohammed Saleem, from Ilford, was found guilty of letting out accommodation which was in an "appalling condition". The single-storey structure housed a family of three on one side of the building and three men on the other side.

Safety officers found the roof to be leaking, dangerous electrics, some of the rooms had no natural lighting or ventilation and there was no fire alarm or fire doors, meaning no safe way of escaping in an emergency.
