Cambridge landlord fined

A Cambridge landlord has been fined. A Maggior Coppola was described as ‘unscrupulous’ by the court after refusing to carry out repairs on a rental property described as been at risk of fire.

Environmental health officers for  Cambridge City Council’s had found the House in Multiple Occupation to be unsafe, with a risk of fire and smoke spreading throughout the property.

They issued Coppola with an improvement notice of the required maintenance and upgrades that needed to be carried out by a deadline in October 2013. Coppola failed to comply with the notice.

Coppola was fined £10,000 for failing to comply with an improvement notice, and pleaded guilty to four offences under the 2004 Housing Act, as well as a further offence under the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976.

On top of the fine, Coppola was left with court costs of £2,500.
