Accrington landlord fined for gas safety failings

A landlord from Accrington has been fined after ignoring repeated warnings about arranging an annual gas safety check at a house in the town. 

Tariq Ali was given numerous opportunities by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to arrange an inspection for a property on Persia Street after the previous gas safety record expired in October 2012. 

Trafford Magistrates’ Court heard that he first came to the attention of the Gas Safe Register in 2011 after gas appliances at several of his properties were classified as being ‘at risk’ or ‘immediately’ dangerous’. 

He was served with an improvement notice relating to the property on Persia Street on 12 September 2013, giving him one month to arrange an annual gas safety check, but he failed to meet the deadline. 

Mr Ali was fined £40,000 and ordered to pay £18,054 in prosecution costs after pleading guilty to single breaches of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 on 4 September 2014. The charges relate to failing to have the gas appliances checked annually and failing to comply with an improvement notice.
