Mr Carmelo Borsellino, of Cheveral Avenue Coventry, has a long history of poor property management and has been convicted of contravening housing legislation on several occasions
His most recent conviction was on 14 July 2021, at Coventry Magistrates’ Court, where he was found guilty of offences relating to the Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation (England) Regulations 2006 at 12-14 Lower Ford Street, Coventry CV1 5QJ.
Mr Borsellino pleaded guilty and was fined £1,350 for this offence and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £135.
Due to the seriousness of these offences, the Council took the decision to apply to the First Tier Property Tribunal for a banning order, which was heard by the Tribunal on 10 June 2022.
On 29 July 2022 the Tribunal issued a banning order on Mr Borsellino preventing him letting property in England for a period of 15 months.
In reaching their decision the Tribunal stated, that “they were unimpressed with Mr Borsellino’s attempts to avoid or diminish the seriousness of having been convicted in relation to fire safety breaches”.
Breaching the order could result in a 51-week prison sentence, court fine or financial penalty of up to £30,000. In addition to the banning order, Mr Borsellino has also been added to the national rogue landlord database.
