People involved in the property rental market in Bath have been reminded of the importance of following fire safety rules.
Bath and North East Somerset Council has said that any landlords in the area who fail to make sure their properties comply with the latest fire regulations will "feel the full force of the law".
The warning follows the prosecution of Hei Ting Cheung, who owns a house in multiple occupation in the city. Officers from the Council's Housing Services team visited his property following a complaint and discovered a number of faults including faulty fire alarms and unsuitable door locks which could lead people to becoming trapped in the event of a fire.
According to the council, Cheung failed to take action and was subsequently prosecuted under Section 30 of the Housing Act 2004.
Councillor Tim Ball, cabinet member for housing and planning, said: "Landlords must ensure that their housing is in safe condition or feel the full force of the law.
"A worrying trend with many of these cases is the use of deadlocks on fire doors by landlords which turn the house into a death trap. This must stop and we will take action against those who put their tenants in danger."
Cheung, of Hayesfield Park, Bath, was fined £1,150, ordered to pay costs of £150 and a victim surcharge of £15.Back..
