SUSPENDED SENTENCE AFTER FAILURE TO CHECK RENTAL GAS FITTINGS

Tuesday, 25th October, 2016

A landlord has been given a suspended prison sentence following his failure to maintain or check the gas fittings in one of his properties. 

A gas fire with back boiler was found to be immediately dangerous when examined by the Health and Safety Executive.

The executive prosecuted the landlord after it was found that the appliance was leaking deadly carbon monoxide into the ground floor sitting room.

Windows were sealed shut and wall ventilation grills had been blocked over for some time, exposing the tenant to the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

The landlord pleaded guilty to breaching Regulation 36 (2) of the Gas Safety Installation and Use Regulations 1998 and was sentenced to a 26 week prison sentence suspended for 24 months.  He was also ordered to pay £1904.02 in costs.
