Land­lord granted HMO ex­ten­sion de­spite noise com­plaints

Evening Times - - NEWS -

COUN­CIL­LORS have re­newed an HMO for an An­der­ston flat de­spite mul­ti­ple noise com­plaints and wa­ter leak­age.

The first is­sue own­ers of the flat at 7 Corunna Street faced came fol­low­ing com­plaints of wa­ter ingress in the bath­room which af­fected the flat be­low in Au­gust 2015.

In Oc­to­ber 2016 the down­stairs neigh­bour made a se­cond com­plaint over noise from the flat above.

In Fe­bru­ary 2017 ten­sions rose again when wa­ter leaked from the bath­room for the se­cond time. The is­sue was re­solved when a new shower unit was in­stalled.

An­other noise com­plaint was logged in Au­gust 2017, but the new ten­ants had not fully moved in at the time.

The fi­nal is­sue was raised in Septem­ber this year when wa­ter es­caped from the new wash­ing ma­chine to the flat be­low be­cause it had not been con­nected prop­erly.

Mem­bers of the li­cens­ing and reg­u­la­tory com­mit­tee con­tin­ued the HMO for an­other three years.
