Landlords of a property in Peterborough have been compensated £6,000 by the local council.
The payment follows a delay in agreeing a lease on the property which was to be used the council for temporary accommodation.
The money has been agreed after an investigation was carried out by the authority following a complaint received by the landlords of a property in Hinchcliffe, Orton Goldhay.
The local press in the city reports a council statement saying: “Evidence was issued by the landlords of the property following additional exchanges in relation to committing to the property which has impacted both the landlord and his wife.”
The £6,000 compensation equals seven months of rent.
