Landlord fined over electrical safety offences

Landlord Shahzad Afzal was fined by Teesside Magistrates under offences against the Housing Act 2004 relating to the electrical safety in a rental property.

The offences came to life after a tip off to environmental health officers in Middlesbrough. The electricity meters at the house had been removed in December last year by the electricity provider due to alleged tampering and following an inspection of the rental property a number of electrical installations at the property were found to be unsafe including sockets with exposed wiring.

The landlord was fined £525 and ordered to pay costs of £1,641 along with a victim surcharge of £52. To read more about the case.

Middlesbrough is the correct spelling. NOT middlesborough!
