Hello, I manage staff accommodation for our company and recently the company split and the original directors of the company went off and started a new company.
These directors own houses in which we have staff living in them. I personally completed all the HMO licenses for them and they signed them. Since then those directors have left and started up their own business. On their last day, they created and signed on behalf of the company and on behalf of themselves as the owners, a lease for each of the properties. Between 5 and 21-year leases, all repair and renew. I only have experience with these from leasing shop units many years ago. Never come across them for residential tenancies.
Where on earth do I stand with all the renewals now for the HMO licenses coming up this year, please? The ex-directors are the owners of the properties but they have set up an LTD company for each house too with them as the directors.
Any advice would be appreciated,
