After reading a lot of the articles on this matter I am very concerned.
I have a property that I have let out as rooms since 2006 and after problems with a tenant that has not paid rent the council was called in by her and now I have been informed that I need a HMO license under the new rules.
I have a court date for the tenant for rent arrears, but according to what I have read here she can claim that because of the HMO license I was not entitled to receive rent!
I am attempting to move all the other tenants out in time for the hearing date so the HMO conditions do not apply.
Will I be entitled to payment under mesne profit because she has no contract with me? She never signed any agreement but did pay some rent over the period.
The case has been adjourned from a previous date because I did not have the land registry documentation with me when the judge requested it.
What are my options?
I can apply for the HMO license, but do not wish to get it and wish to let the property out to a single family after this tenant is out.
