Agents plead

Two managing agents in Hatfield, were ordered to pay a total of £42,534 in fines after pleading guilty to 46

offences at St Albans Magistrates’ Court in June.

Odus Ltd admitted 41 management regulation offences relating to fire safety contraventions and disrepair

issues on four properties. It was fined £17,600 and Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council was awarded £17,424 in

costs.

A St Albans-based company, XS Property Management and Maintenance Ltd admitted to five offences

including failure to license a HMO and not complying with fire safety regulations. They were fined £4,300 and

the council was awarded £3,210.12 in costs.

Executive member for planning, housing and community, Councilor Mandy Perkins said “We are very pleased

with this outcome; it is proof that we will not tolerate managing agents in our borough who compromise the

safety of their tenants, particularly relating to fire safety issues.

“We hugely value the contribution that good quality rented accommodation makes to the local housing

market, but we hope this sends a clear signal to managing agents that they must comply with the law. I would

urge residents to protect themselves by checking their managing agent or landlord is PAL accredited.  This is a

council-run scheme, which strives to ensure that accredited managing agents meet their legal obligations.”

The Partnership Accreditation for Landlords (PAL) scheme recognises landlords and agents who meet their

legal obligations and now also include a ‘gold’ standard for those who go the extra mile to provide quality

homes.
