Selective landlord licensing conditions

Each landlord licence has a number of conditions attached to ensure the effective management of the property and tenancy. Some of these conditions are mandatory and required by law. Others have been created to try tackle common issues and problems affecting the designated areas. The conditions provide a framework for landlords to follow and are crucial to the success of a licensing scheme.

Non compliance with the condition of a landlord licence is an offence, liable to a financial penalty of up to £5000 per breach, or a formal prosecution in the Magistrate's Court.
