Selective Licensing Scheme
How much will I pay for a Selective Licence direct with the Council?
|Property Type||Five year licence fee|
|Single occupancy household|
For each dwelling which is occupied by a single household (eg house, self-contained flat or non self-contained flat)
|Buildings containing flats where the landlord owns the freehold(1) |
A single licence will be issued covering all of the flats within the control of the landlord
|£515 and then £505 for each additional flat within the same building|
|Buildings containing flats where the landlord owns more than one flat in a building without owning the freehold|
As the landlord does not own the freehold, then each flat will require an individual licence
|£515 for first flat and then £505 for each additional flat within the same building|
Selective Licensing designation entering latter stages
There is no option to pay monthly for licences directly with the Council.
|Reduced Rates(2)||Five year licence fee|
|Accredited membership of selected organisation|
Reduced fees will apply to accredited members of one of the following organisations:
|Early application reduced fee|
Applies to all licence applications received and fully completed with all requested documentation by the 7 April 2019 (ie within three months of the designation of scheme)
- This only applies where the applicant is in control of the whole building (eg a landlord who owns the whole block). In cases where the applicant has one or more flats within a building, but do not have full control of the block, then the applicant will require individual licence applications for each flat in the block.
- Where applicable, all reduced rates can apply to the same licence application. In the case of multiple flats within the same building where the landlord is not the freeholder, the rate will only apply to the initial application.
