Penalties for failing to apply for a licence

We will work with property owners and managing agents to ensure their homes are licensed. Where there are issues or problems we will support you to overcome them.

Civil Penalty Notice

Where an owner fails to follow advice or knowingly fails to licence their property further action will be taken. If you do not licence the property you could be given a Civil Penalty Notice and fine or you could be prosecuted through the Magistrates’ Court.  On conviction you may be required to re-pay rent you have been paid to the tenant or the local authority.
