Crouch End landlord to pay back £300k made from renting ‘tiny’ flats

A rogue landlord who rented out illegally converted flats in Crouch End will have to pay back £300,000 he made from renting out nine “tiny” flats in the same house.
Andreas Lytras, of Jamestown Road in Camden, converted a house in Ridge Road into nine individual flats without permission. He then continued to rent them despite being told not to by Haringey Council in 2012.
He appealed the decision to the Planning Inspectorate a year later, but it was thrown out. Then he carried on letting out the flats.
If he doesn’t pay the cash back in three months, he could face jail.
Earlier hearings led to him pleading guilty at Wood Green Crown Court on June 15 to noncompliance with an enforcement notice.

The court issued a confiscation order demanding the 59-year-old pay back £310,372, the amount he made from the rental income on the flats.
He was also fined £5,000 and told to pay the council’s £4,065 court costs.
