Sheffield landlord fined £5,000

Landlord, Mohammed Fathy Mohamed Khalif has been ordered to pay £5,000 after ignoring improvement notices issued by Sheffield City Council under the Housing Act 2004 and a notice under the Building Act 1984.

The court heard how Khalifa had failed to make  any of the required improvements to his rental property in Grimesthorpe rented to a family with two children.

Sheffield Council's Private Housing Standards team reported on a number gas and electrical defects at the rental property.

Councillor Jayne Dunn, cabinet member for housing at Sheffield City Council, said:

"We are prosecuting more people than ever and we will continue until landlords get the message that we will not accept unlawful behaviour in Sheffield. I hope the large number of good landlords in our city see that we are tackling the minority that tarnish the whole sector.”

Khalifa will now have to carry out the required works or face further action.
