HEFTY fines of £5,000 will be dished out to landlords and tenants of shared homes that fail to put out rubbish correctly, Portsmouth City Council has decided.

At a housing meeting this week councillors approved the penalties which will affect houses of multiple occupancy (HMOs) in the city.

As a result the fine will increase by more than 8,000 per cent from its previous cost of £60. It will be issued if residents are found leaving waste in forecourts, in the streets or in neighbours' front gardens, and both landlords and tenants can be penalised.
