Private rented property licensing

What happens after you have applied

We will tell you and any other interested parties whether we plan to grant or refuse a licence within approximately 12 weeks of receiving your complete application (including floor plans and safety certificates). Timescales may vary depending on the number of applications being processed at the time.

This will be followed by a 14-day consultation period which gives you and all interested parties the chance to ask questions, challenge our decision or make comments.

We will give you the notice of the grant or refusal of a licence, as well as a copy of the licence at the end of this consultation period.
