Five students in Leeds have beaten their landlord in a legal case after he tried to claim a years rent from them in court.
The students' landlord, Sukhvir Thethi, had originally taken the five students to small claims court after they moved out of their property prematurely.
Mr Thethi's property, the students alleged, was in an unfit and uninhabitable state to live in, with one of the student's father's, Terry Pomroy, telling Leeds Student that "one of the students suffered an electric shock off the cooker".
Mr Pomroy continued, alleging that "there were mice droppings everywhere and we called in Rentokil to determine all the pest issues which included an infestation of bed bugs".
Further to beating Mr Thethi and claiming back their legal costs the students could be entitled to compensation after being forced to live in an uninhabitable building.
Mr Thethi is a partner at Avtar Properties, which claims to have 40 years of industry experience in Leeds.
