I let a house to an individual with the agreement that he could sub let. One of the sub tenants approached my agent saying he was having difficulty claiming housing benefit and so an agreement was issued to him, for this purpose only, with the words 'a room in' included. It was never meant to supersede the original.
The Council is now using the to define the house as an HMO for tax purposes and is after me for council Tax.
How do I stand?
