Albany Road student landlord fined by Cardiff magistrates
A Cardiff landlord has been fined £4,000 after admitting renting five rooms to students which inspectors found had "dangerous failings".
Spiridian Micallef, of Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan, pleaded guilty to eight charges relating to a rented property in Albany Road, Cardiff.
Council officials were called in following complaints made last November, city magistrates were told.
Inspectors found faulty electrical sockets and several other issues.
