Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am afraid as you are subletting the rooms, you are deemed to be the landlord of these subtenants.
Legal ownership is different from landlord, you are the landlord for the purposes of this RRO application but the legal ownership remains the registered proprietor.
May I help further?

If you pay the money back as per the RRO, you will be fine.
All the best. Please click on 5 stars
