Rotherham landlord fined £13.5k

Rotherham landlord, Mohammed Tariq has been fined over £13,000 after failing to properly maintain a block of flats he rents out on Victoria Street, Kilnhurst.

Borough Council officers were called to the rental property, a house converted into flats, after one tenant complained the landlord had disconnected her boiler.

On gaining entry to the rental property a list of issues were identified by the council officers - no working fire detectors, a lack of firefighting equipment, poorly maintained gas and electrical systems, and severe damp and black mould.

The council concluded the tenants health was in imminent risk of harm  and re-housed all of them.

Tariq, of Gerard Road, Rotherham, pleaded guilty to a number of offences relating to housing standards and was ordered to pay fines totalling £13,500, costs of £950 and a victim surcharge of £120.
