Landlord trio ordered to pay £250,000 after cramming 31 tenants into home

A family of landlords has been ordered to pay almost £250,000 after “cramming” 31 tenants into a four-bedroom house.

Council officers found the tenants were forced to sleep in shifts as night workers would swap with those who had daytime working hours at the property in Wembley.

Four beds were found in the front room and three in each bedroom.

The authority said Harsha Shah, her daughter Chandni and brother Sanjay were bringing in approximately £112,000 a year by “stuffing 31 people into appalling conditions.”

Harsha and Chandni Shah have been subjected to a £116,000 confiscation order, while their agent Jaydipkumar Valand was made to repay £5,000.

All three defendants from the Shah family were also ordered to pay £41,000 in fines, as well as costs of £82,367 at Harrow Crown Court.
