‘Terrible’ Sheffield landlord who illegally evicted tenant and forced her to sleep rough avoids jail
A ‘terrible’ rouge landlord has avoided a jail term after illegally evicting a tenant forcing her to sleep on the streets.
Naveed Hussain, aged 36, of Pitsmoor Road, Pitsmoor, forced Saba Habte out of a flat above a takeaway she was renting on The Wicker with no warning.
Sheffield Magistrates’ Court heard Ms Habte, who speaks little English, was sat drinking a cup of tea in her room when Hussain burst in and demanded her out on December 15, 2016.
When she challenged him, Hussain replied ‘it is my house and I can do as I choose’ and took the key from the door and put it in his pocket.
