Problems with New Tenants - Where does the LA's responsibility end?
After visiting the house yesterday to bleed the radiators, I discovered that there are actually what appears to be 5 individuals living in the house and I am now in a quandry about what to do. Aside from the lost income that I could have gained from going down this route originally, I am angry about the deception and worried about the implications of not being HMO licenced.
Given that it is a very new tenancy - what are my rights with regards to the letting agency - I have paid them approx £5,000 pounds to find me quality tenants and now I am left with this problem 2 weeks after the tenancy begins. I used to have a Contractual Tenancy agreement because of the yearly income earned but now, due to legislative changes, the new tenants have an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. What exactly can I do in this situation within the bounds of this agreement?
Thanks for your help.
