Hello, my tenants have served a Rent Repayment Order on me for 9 months of rent which is a lot of money. Under the grounds that I did not have a selective licence on my property. It is not a HMO, its a 2 bed terraced house.
They found out I did not have a license and informed me. I was not aware that my property was a property selected for this license and checked on line I then paid it immediately. They wanted to leave the 1 year fixed tenancy early and mentioned that they would not mention to the council this issue, but I told them that I had paid it immediately.
I didn’t want unhappy tenants and I agreed to end the tenancy early. I was unaware that after our agreement to end the tenancy they were in talks about me not having a license and how the council are going to fine me. I paid all backdated funds for the license and the council were happy to not take any further, but my tenants wouldn’t let it go and they found out that they could get a rent repayment on all their stay at my home. Can someone please help and advise as we are looking at a lot of money and it is causing problems home.
Thanks in advance of any help given
