Ive just had my wheels refurbed now my tyres arent holding any air, the tyres weren't taken off the rims, just deflated then broke off the seal with the big piston thingy.

As far as i can make out theyre leaking air out of the front of the rim (the side the seal was broken).

Any reason for them not sealing properly? Will i have to go to a tyre place and get them take right off the rims then put on again with sealer of some sort?

only takes a bit of crap where the tyre sits to make them leak. Get the tyres taken off then wire brush the area where the tyre sits to remove any muck and corrosion. It'll be a pain to get the tyre place to take them off but spending time yourself cleaning the rims is worth it in the end.
