By James Simons-
Rogue landlord Robert Crow has been given one month to produce £4,000 or face losing his third property.
Mr. crow, 70 has already had two of his four bedroom property repossessed from him by Mortgage lenders, besides one of them which has recently been sold. This week he was sent a court order for the third property.
The Eye Of Media.Com heard the sold property went for £88,000 and Mr.Crow’s lenders-The Bank Of Ireland, have written to him asking him to pay a £1,200 loss they say they made of the claimed. ”I don’t know they expect me to pay that. They got more chance getting more chance of getting blood out of a stone.
Two of the court orders have already put both properties up for grabs after the courts told him that the lenders can take the property if he fails to pay a debt in the next month.
His fourth property is already in arrears, and awaiting repossession too Mr.Crow currently lives in darkness after energy supplier Eon stopped his energy supply following irregularities in his energy supply.
The landlord who accommodated the homeless until last summer when Southend Borough Council stopped his benefits due to alleged anti social behaviour at the property is now in dire straits over several mortgage arrears.
Police were called to mr.Crow’s property an estimated 50 times between 2018 and 2019 following several incidents, including one resident, Kenneth Lucas in which one of his residents was stabbed in the neck by another resident.
The victim eventually failed to turn up in court after he himself was wanted by police for robbery. He then pocketed all the rent given to him by housing benefit, piling up a huge debt which was never paid before being eventually driven out by mr.Crow.
The Council later said a court order banning mr. Crow from renting his property or having visitors attend the property except family members, made him no longer eligible for the funds.
Mr Crow claims he has been the victim of a sustained and unfair conspiracy by Southend Council under the influence of former Council manager Stuart Burrell-a housing manager jailed in January 2019 for defrauding the council of £300,000. He plans to use this information as the basis of a case claiming corruption against him in a pending criminal case against him.
Attempts to investigate his claims produced hear say from some independent sources, but nothing provable.
Other covert inquiries made along those lines faced legal complications in making any direct connections between mr.Burrell and mr.Crow, although there was some evidence suggesting that the landlord was heavily unpopular and disapproved of in Southend Borough Council because of regular complaints form his neighbours about the state of his property.
Mr.crow was fined a total of £90k by both Chelmsford(2016) and Basildon Magistrates Court(2018) for breaches to an HMO property. Appeals he lodged against both fines were unsuccessful. The fine was dramatically dropped in September at Southend Magistrates Court after the courts concluded there was no likely means of them obtaining the money.
