My property is in an area of additional HMO licencing therefore requires a licence for 3 sharers or more. I let my house to two people on a 12 month AST. They have moved in two more, the council know this now and say they require a licence. The tenants are in breach of their AST, so I thought that I could use a section 8 notice, ground 12, however, I have only been given two weeks to get the HMO licence which I do not want to do. Also I have read in an online government document that I cannot evict the tenants because of this!
I do not know if I can get a temporary exemption notice whilst I try to sort this out as my council state that “Temporary Exemption may be granted only if the building is to be altered to remove it from a licensing category”.
It seems unfair to me that I have been put in this situation against my will and yet can’t do anything to aid my situation!
Does anyone have any advice?
Many thanks in advance.
