I have a client who has just approached me with a problem. He moved to London 2 years ago and let his house to a friend and her daughter. He wants to sell so the friend/tenant went to the council (he doesn’t know why but I have informed her it will be because she doesn’t want to leave). They have asked for his landlord licence number. He hadn’t got one because he wasn’t aware of the Nottingham licensing scheme.
He is very scared now. My question is what should be his next steps? As he is selling he could apply for a TEN – a temporary license of 3 months. I will have found a buyer with a sitting tenant by then.
Is this the best advice? Would he face a fine because he has been letting without a license or will it be OK because he has now applied for one?
