Plymouth landlord fined £20k over gas boilers

A landlord has been fined £20,000 and ordered to pay costs of £2,817 by Plymouth Magistrates.
Landlord, Abdul Manik, 54, failed to act on a faulty gas boiler despite a Gas Safe registered engineer informing him the appliance was ‘immediately dangerous’.

The gas engineer who had been called to the rental flat by the tenant informed the HSE that the gas boiler 'could cause an immediate danger to life or property'.

The HSE inquiries found that Mr Manik had no gas safety certificate for a number of the flats at the property at Meadfoot Terrace, Plymouth. Despite being served an Improvement Notice, requiring him to undertake landlords’ gas safety checks, Mr Manik failed to have the work done in time to meet the notice's expiry date.
