Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

I was told by the council (South Holland) in North Cambridgeshire that there was a prohibition notice on my property and the tenant has vacated.
However, when I sent workmen to secure the property this was not the case the tenant was still in situ.
The following week the tenant did vacate and the schedule was left at the property stating three items of work had to be completed as this was a prohibition notice, but the prohibition notice was never served, it was never left in full at the property and it was never sent to me until I requested it by email a month later.
I have asked The council to give me proof of service and they have not yet replied. There were three items on the notice:
As they have all certificates they requested I have asked the council to lift the prohibition notice and they have refused and not given a reason as yet. I have appealed to the tribunal.
My question is now the notice has been complied with and now and appeal has been lodged am I permitted to rent the property pending the appeal?
I am aware the appeal could take months thank you would anybody be able to help me answer this question.
