I rent a property out and from the start I have charged a low

Resolved Question:

I rent a property out and from the start I have charged a low rent ,I was happy to execpt a low rent because the tenants looked after the house and in a way save me money on repairs I would have needed if I kept changing tenants
I was not aware they claimed housing benefit as the payment went to a letting agent.
now the council is saying this was a contrived tenancy
