It seems that no matter your age, there is no leniency for falling foul of landlord legislation.
Following persistent failures to comply with Improvement Notices, which were issued in response to complaints of a property that had fallen into a state of disrepair, 84-year-old Leslie Winspear has been ordered to pay over £20,000 and sign up to a Criminal Behaviour order, which puts a bar on him renting out property or instructing a letting agent to do so on his behalf.
