How do I renew a licence and what is the cost?

The process and cost of renewing a licence is exactly the same as for making an initial application.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you apply to renew the licence in good time to ensure that the new licence is issued from the date that the old one expires.

Where there has been no change in details since the last application you will be able to make an on-line declaration to prevent the need to resubmit an application form. However, you will still need to submit any safety certificates that are renewed annually including a landlords gas safety certificate, fire detection system inspection record, or other certificates that may have expired or been updated during the course of the year including the five-year electrical installation test and report or energy performance certificate.

Please note that when renewing a licence for a HMO that was previously licensed before the 1st October 2018, you will need to make a full application and will not be able to use the declaration. This is because the government has introduced new licensing requirements around minimum room sizes which requires you to provide more information than previously required.
