Alert to landlords on cannabis farming


Police in Sheffield have uncovered a large cannabis farm in a private rented property.

The farms can involve large scale alteration­s to the home, including removal of walls and changes to the electricit­y supply, resulting in tens of thousands of pounds of damage to a landlord’s property.

Cannabis farms are an ongoing issue for buy-to-let landlords. A police spokespers­on said: “You may not be aware but the landlord will receive a hefty bill to reconnect before being able to rent out the property. It’s worth being careful and vigilant if you rent a home out.”
