Landlord gets gas fines reduced

A Plymouth landlord faced with £20,000 fines has managed to get his fine reduced at appeal.
Landlord Abdul Manik, fined back in November for failing to properly maintain gas appliances at his rental property, had his fines reduced to £12,000.

Heard at Plymouth Crown Court, magistrates took heed of the landlords defence, who argued that Mr Manik had made no profit from his rental properties and was now in the process of selling them.

Recorder Julia Clayton summed up the decision -

"The level of fines was such that they could not be paid off by you in a sensible period.”
