Landlord pays 17,000 for fire safety breaches



Following a fire at his property in Birmingham Road, Walsall in January 2009, landlord Pervaiz Khan pleaded guilty on 8 July at Wolverhampton Crown Court to five offences under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Khan was fined 9,000 and ordered to pay 8,166 in costs.


The property in question was a HMO (house in multiple occupation) and the court heard that Khan failed to take adequate precautions to ensure its safety. He also failed to install a fire alarm, and did not carry out a proper fire risk assessment.


When the fire brigade arrived to tackle the blaze they found tenants still asleep inside the property. A post-fire investigation found that no fire alarm had been fitted, there was no emergency lighting, and the only staircase in the building had no fire protection.
