Our previous tenants from 2018 submitted a Rent Repayment Order claim for non licence HMO. Initial Rent Repayment Order Letter correspondence from previous tenants solicitor was received February 2020.
We then made a financial offer Pre Coronavirus Pandemic, our offer was submitted to the tenants via there solicitor beginning March 2020. In the offer letter we stated that due to our already fragile financial situation, a third party would be supporting/loaning us the funds to pay the RRO.
The previous tenants then accepted our offer April 2020. We have since sent a further reply since they accepted advising due to the current pandemic we now have found ourselves in further fragile financial status. Also advising the initial third party support/loan is no longer available due to there now fragile financial situation. We have proposed a lower settlement figure(which third party can support us with) to which the solicitor has advised once an offer is made and accepted, it becomes legally binding.
They have advised that they will issue court proceedings to enforce the terms agreed upon. And we will also be held liable for previous tenants court costs.
My question is: Were do we stand? And what would you do?
We feel no consideration is being given to the current situation so many of us find ourselves in. We just want this nightmare dealing with as a matter of urgency and want to prevent court proceedings at all costs!
Thanks in advance
