I have a two bedroomed flat and allowed two individuals to live in it. One in a bedroom and the other turned the lounge into a bedroom/bedsit situation. So that left one spare bedroom.
One tenant sub-let the other bedroom without me knowing so three people were now living in the flat.
When I found out and met the illegal tenant, he seemed like a nice guy, long term sofa surfer, desperate for a place of his own. So I gave him a tenancy agreement of his own.
Then began the eviction process for the tenant that was illegally sub-letting. I am now being told that the eviction process won’t go through because I don’t have an HMO licence which is £800 and he can stay for six months on either a Section 8 or a Section 21!
Anybody any clues as to what to do next? I’m furious!!
