The Labour Assembly Member for Ealing & Hillingdon, Onkar Sahota, is a large scale property investor. I have so far found 11 properties that he has an interest in. Four private homes, two doctors’ surgeries, the land he has left derelict at 42 Lower Boston Road for ten years and four flats organised as a registered HMO (LN/000014753) in the centre of Southall. Strangely although the site is formally registered as an HMO with the council it is not registered in Sahota’s name but that of a relative. Land Registry confirms though that Sahota and his wife own the site.
I visited the Southall site today and took these photos. I have tried not to identify the site too precisely as there will be people living there potentially. I hope not.
The front door looks very neglected.
Peering through the glass of the front door the worn carpet and handrail paint a bleak picture.
The rubbish strewn rear is similarly sad looking.
Could Onkar Sahota be one of the landlords that Sadiq Khan intends to “name and shame”?
