Selective Licensing Scheme

How do I comply with the law around Selective Licensing?

All non-exempt, privately-rented dwellings within the Selective Licensing Designation area must now be licensed. The licence conditions must be complied with by the licence holder.

For avoidance of doubt, a dwelling is not Selectively Licensed in compliance with the law until:

  • a complete application is submitted to the Council
  • the licence fee has been paid
  • the licence consultation with interested parties has been completed (this may take over three weeks)
  • the licence is issued by the Council

It is a criminal offence for such dwellings to be unlicensed.
