Landlords fined - again

North West landlords have been fined a total of £4000 for letting out unsuitable rental properties.

Now there really is no excuse, come on fellow landlords let's bring some humanity to the business of letting property, I mean in one property the tenant was living with no running hot or cold water, no working toilet or bathing facilities, no heating and smashed windows.

When returning to re-inspect the property following the initial recommendations the council found that the property continued to break regulations stating that the property still required works to address several hazards relating to damp and mould growth, electrical safety, entry by intruders, excess cold, falls, fire, food safety, personal hygiene, sanitation and drainage.

I mean what's left on the list, an unexploded bomb and an infestation of scorpions, it really isn't good enough.
