Landlord fined – gas appliances not maintained

Truro Crown Court heard how gas appliances in the two properties went unmaintained and were not inspected by a registered Gas Safe Register engineer.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive found the landlord, David Bush, failed to obtain Landlord Gas Safety Records after May 2014. It was also found that the appliances had not been serviced for at least four years.

He has been given a 12-month prison sentence suspended for 24 months, fined £5,000, and ordered to pay costs of £5,524.

Make sure your gas safety records are all up to date!
