Liverpool landlord fined £60,000

A Liverpool landlord has been fined £60,000 for renting out damp flats without the required fire safety measures.

Ironically, ex firefighter, Adrian Webb, failed to install fire alarms and fire-resistant doors to his rental properties.

The properties were also kept in a poor state of repair - with collapsed ceilings, no hand rails on a staircase, unfit kitchens and no heating.

This £60,000 fine ( £15,000 for each of the four breaches of the building safety orders ) follows on from a fine of £16,000 handed to him last year, alongside an order not to rent to any new tenants until improvement works were carried out - an order subsequently ignored by Mr Webb.

The judge told Mr Webb his actions were “absolutely disgraceful" and alongside the £60,000 in fines ordered him to pay £944.11 in costs to Liverpool council and a £170 victim surcharge.
