Officers discovered hazardous electrics with bare wires exposed in the bathroom and electrical sockets in rooms exposing connections.
Following a re-inspection of the property, officers discovered the property was still occupied in breach of the Prohibition Order and prosecuted Qadeer.
A council spokesperson says: ”The vast majority of landlords provide tenants with good quality, safe accommodation. Where landlords refuse to comply with their legal duties, our officers will not hesitate to step in and take enforcement action where necessary, even where landlords live outside North Lincolnshire.
“This prosecution should act as a warning to other landlords who may be inclined to cut corners and endanger their tenants.”
Landlords are advised to make sure they are aware of the new legal duties requiring them to have in place Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR) for the domestic properties they rent.
From April 1 this year, these certificates should have been provided to current tenants and to any prospective tenant when asked within 28 days. Where a local council asks for copies of the certificate it must be provided within seven days.
