Manchester HMO landlord fined £15k

A Manchester landlord has been ordered to pay £15,672 following a fire at his rental flat in Moss Side.

Following the fire, council officers visited the flat situated above a shop, to discover it had been rented to eight tenants without the required licence.

Officers found the flat breached safety regulations. The electrics were dangerous, the smoke alarm defective and the only escape route, through the kitchen, to be insufficient.

Landlord, Rashpal Singh, 48 was found guilty of failing to comply with Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) licensing legislation.

Mr Singh must also pay back a total of £11,884.33 in housing benefit payments made to him.
