Properties without a licence

Properties without a licence

How we charge for a property we find to be unlicensed.

If we find an unlicensed rented property, we: 

  • add an extra £100 to the fee to cover our investigation time

If you fail to licence an address that isn’t exempt we may:

  • take prosecution proceedings
  • impose a financial penalty of up to £30,000

If you’re convicted, the Court may impose an unlimited fine.

You could also:

  • have control of your unlicensed properties taken away from you
  • be ordered to repay up to 12 months’ rent to the us or your tenants
  • be restricted on how you terminate tenancies
