The perils of taking shortcuts with End of Tenancy Cleaning have been highlighted by a recent case in London.
A landlord from Sutton was fined £460 and ordered to pay £1,100 in prosecution costs after he was found to have dumped a variety or rubbish from one of his properties on a street in the borough.
The landlord, Paul Fabre, was traced by environmental health officers from Sutton Council after they found documents in the waste.
Included in the illegally dumped rubbish was a three piece suite, wardrobe, two mattresses, two broken vacuum cleaners, cushions, carpet and an electric fan.
Mr Fabre had claimed that the items had been stored at a property he owned and that he had employed a contractor to clear the house and garden, but he was unable to produce any supporting evidence.
Cllr Colin Hall commented: “Our residents are very concerned about littering and fly-tipping and we take this very seriously. Landlords must realise they have a duty to dispose of waste properly.
