Private rented property licensing

Varying your property licence

Property licences can be varied in certain circumstances. Reasons to vary your licence may include:

  • Change of name (marriage/divorce/deed poll)
  • Change of licence holder or manager’s address
  • Change of number of occupants or households
  • Change in amenities.

There is no fee for a variation to your licence but if you are applying to use additional rooms, you will have to pay the additional £50 per habitable room fee.

A variation cannot be granted for a change of owner, as licences are non-transferable. You will need to apply to revoke your current licence and the new applicant will be required to submit a new application complete with full fee.

Applications to vary cannot be submitted online. The paper application form and guidance notes can be downloaded or are available by contacting PRSlicensing@ealing.gov.uk or by telephoning 020 8825 9512.
