A LANDLORD was fined £99,000 after pleading guilty to 22 charges relating to the filthy and unsafe bedsits he owned and managed.

Ludomir Szulc was also forced to pay costs of £5,835 at Bexley Magistrates Court last Tuesday after the council found a catalogue of problems with Priestlands Manor bedsits in Sidcup, which Mr Szulc owns. These included uncapped gas pipes in bedrooms, dangerous electrics, lack of adequate fire precautions, badly maintained and filthy bathrooms and kitchen along with a lack of hot water to kitchen and sinks.

Environmental Health Officers said that they had made every effort to work with Mr Szulc but that he had consistently failed to take their advice.

The council prosecuted him for failing to manage the property under the Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation Regulations 2006.
