I let my property, didn't have a license at the time, tenant wants to claim money under RRO. Can my tenant actually claim the 12 months rent back? has anybody had the same problem, What can i do?
Yes, the tenant can claim money back through the RRO provided your breach is covered under the RRO allowing RRO to claw money back from you. However, the matter if bought to court can and re successfully being defended.
