Yes, you may do so if you step letting out your property but the council may not refund you any fee which you paid licence.

May I help further?

Please specify what clarification you need?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Basically, my existing tenants have been given formal notice of repossession and have gone to the local council to complain, about what, I don't know. The council seemingly vindictively has written to me requesting some property auditing information. Given that the property needs to be empty work, I want to return the valid property licence back to the council suspending my right to let the property.

Can I return the Licence without providing answers to their request audit information?

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
You may return the licence without responding to the council's request audit information but the council may chase you information anyway.

All the best
