I currently have an issue concerning dealings with the Nottingham City Council HMO Licence.
I was granted an HMO licence by the Council in 2009. When I applied to renew my licence I was told that two of the room sizes are two small even though I have not made any changes in the last 5 years.
After obtaining the last licence I redecorated the entire property and put down laminate flooring in the bedrooms. Now I have been told I can only let to 6 people and not 7 unless I change the room sizes which will involve considerable time and money. However, the council refuse to even talk compensation with me and admitted their mistake and say they are enforcing the law more stringently this time!
My issue is that due to their incompetence, I have to undo my original work and then do it all over again.
Council inspectors seem to take their responsibilities to landlords very lightly!!
Can anybody help with this matter of claiming compensation from the council or experienced similar?
