When you attended before the tribunal, did you provide evidence as to the date you moved in? Did you tell the tenant you were moving in? Did you give proper notice to the tenant in writing?

If you have evidence of these matters, but did not bring this before the tribunal, you could try asking for a rehearing of the tribunal decision. That would not necessarily be easy to obtain, and you would need to explain why that evidence was not available at the 1st hearing
