I am very, very new to this posting! So please bare with me. My tenants have had a Section 21 on them and they are refusing to move out until they are rehoused by the council. It doesn't help that the council have told them not to move out and wait until I have got a possession order. This will mean the council can push them up the list. I am furious as the tenants have been a nightmare from day one. They have been there 12 months.
Anyway I will cut to the chase! I receive housing benefit. HB will continue to pay rent until they move out. If I continue to receive this, will it affect me trying to get the tenants out as there is no longer a tenancy agreement, as it has expired.
Also am I liable for any work needed on the property while the tenants are still there?
