Our local environmental health office has recently visited a house as a neighbour had complained of over crowding. They have witnessed that there are only 4 letting rooms and they have evidenced the tenancy agreements, however they have now served a 'draft' notice on us. We are really confused as this 'draft' states that no one can sleep in the kitchen / bathroom etc - which they have evidenced that no one could possibly be sleeping in either room. They state that the 'draft' order wont take effect until next February to allow for 'natural wasteage' and have ask us to comment on the 'draft' order? We have spoken to the tenants regarding this issue and they say that they do have friends over to stay quiet alot. What are we supposed to do, we only have 4 tenancy agreements and 4 tenants in the property so how can this be classed as overcrowded and where do we stand legally regarding tenants having friends to stay on a regular basis?
