Landlords fined for breaching regulations

Two landlords have been fined almost £14,000 for breaching a multitude of property management regulations.

The charges related to the management of a three-storey rental property in south east Birmingham.

Council officers visited the property last October following a complaint from a tenant.

Visitors found a range of health and safety failings, including:

– No working fire detection

– Many doors were not fire doors

– No fire blanket in the kitchen

– Bare and exposed wires

– Trailing wires and extension cables

– A broken central heating system and inaccessible boiler
