Landlords in Liverpool have been advised to make sure they are adhering to every legal requirement.

Councillor Marilyn Fielding, executive member for communities at Liverpool city council, said landlords who do not obey the law are risking people's lives.

She was speaking after Raymond Whalley, owner of a shared house in the Kensington area, was fined £7,000 for letting his property out without a licence.

He had violated a law which requires rental landlords to register any three-storey houses which have more than five occupants.

Councillor Fielding warned that if people refuse to get the necessary licence, they should be prepared to face the consequences.

"The council will take every action possible against owners who ignore the law,"she commented.

This comes after the National Landlords Association revealed that demand for rental property remains high across the UK, largely because people are having difficulty getting mortgage finance.
