Leicester HMO landlord fined £16,000

Leicester City Council has reported that landlord, Munir Nathanie has been fined over £16,000 for breaching eight licensing conditions at a HMO (House in Multiple Occupation) property he manages. 

Alongside a £2,000 fine applied to each of the eight breaches, Nathanie was ordered to pay £2,037 in prosecution costs and a £120 victim surcharge.

The issues at the HMO in Leicester came to light following a complaint of one of the seven tenants. On inspection of the property, eight breeches of HMO regulation were found, including a faulty fire alarm system, unsafe electrics and a poorly maintained fire escape.

The city's assistant mayor for neighbourhood services, Cllr Sarah Russell, said:

 “These licensing conditions and regulations exist to ensure that tenants are safe, and we take it seriously when landlords like this don’t comply with them.”
