Another cannabis farm has been found in a rental home - one month after the National Landlords Association warned property owners to stay vigilant about the prevalence of such illegal businesses in the UK.

In March, the BBC indicated that 29 police forces across the UK had revealed a sharp rise in cannabis being produced inside houses rented from landlords.

Now the Birmingham Mail has reported that a property in Bromford Road, Hodge Hill had cannabis growing in every room.

West Midlands Police arrested a man in his 20s at the scene and are currently questioning the individual.

The police force has also found two Solihull properties in similar states over the last few weeks.

Landlord responsibilities include checking their property on a regular basis. Conducting thorough tenant credit checks will also help ensure landlords employ tenants who are able to pay the rent on time and in full.
