A North Yorkshire landlord has been sentenced for potentially putting the life of his tenants at risk by breaching fire regulations, such as the use of fire signs.

Laszlo Banky, who lives in Scarborough, must complete 100 hours of unpaid work after being convicted of eight breaches of fire safety regulations, the Gazette & Herald reports.

The 51-year-old was also found to have failed to apply for the correct licence for the guesthouse he owns in North Marine Road in the city, where he lived with eight tenants.

Andy Skelton, Scarborough Borough Council’s head of environmental services, was quoted by the newspaper as saying: "In this case, the nature of the offences was serious enough to warrant a much greater sentence and landlords should not take this warning lightly."

This month, a Bradford landlord, Enus Miah, was fined £2,500 for putting tenants' lives at risk partly because of missing fire safety signs at a property he owned in the city.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800367857-ADNFCR
