“If this is exempt accommodation and you consider the rent to be unreasonably high compared with suitable alternative accommodation which is available, you can restrict the rent to whatever amount you consider reasonable. Good luck with that though – the evidence burden is almost impossible to satisfy.”

You really don’t want to succeed in such circumstances either! If you were to do so, you would end up with a subsidy loss/local cost as a reward for your effort…
