Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019

I am looking for information regarding a tenant who i may shortly be evicting. I have been informed that issuing a section 21 will be invalid as I still haven’t obtained a license for the property as it is in the Liverpool area.
I have registered all my properties with Liverpool City council for a License but i have not received the License through yet like a lot of Landlords as the council are back logged with work. I have been informed by the letting agents that currently manages the property that if I still haven’t got a License for the property (which is no fault of my own) then a section 21 would be invalid and can’t be issued without a license ?
Could I please have more information on this. Surly any Judge would see that if I have applied for the license and it isn’t my fault that I shouldn’t be penalised for this !
