Bradford landlord fined £12,000

A Bradford landlord has been handed £12,000 in fines and costs.

Kabir Hussain, 46, pleaded guilty to three charges of failing to comply with regulations in respect of management of houses in multiple occupation.

The large rental property on Keighley Road, Bradford is divided into eleven flats.

Following an inspection from the Bradford Council Environmental Health Team in December 2014 the rental property was found to be breaching a number of fire safety regulations - the fire alarm was not working,  smoke detectors were missing or broken, and some bedrooms did not have the required access to escape.

The property was also described as being in a poor state repair - with holes in the fabric of the building, alongside insufficient heating causing  damp and mould that prompted concerns over the impact on the health of some of the tenants. 

Mr Hussain was accused of "poor management of this property over a significant period of time."
