Nottingham City Council and Gedling Borough Council have Selective Licensing schemes in place.
Nottingham City Council’s second licensing scheme came into effect on the 1st December 2023. Please note that the designation zone for Nottingham City Council’s new scheme is different to the initial scheme that ran from 2018 – 2023. Details of the new designation zone can be found HERE
Nottingham City’s new licence scheme will cost £887 per property, reducing to £665 for accredited Landlords. Please note this fee will rise to £1233 for those Landlords whom Nottingham deem as less compliant.
Gedling Borough Council ran an initial selective licensing scheme in the Netherfield ward which came to an end in September 2023. The council are considering the results of licensing in Netherfield to decide whether to hold a consultation for a new scheme. Gedling introduced further selective licensing zones in more areas of the borough in November 2022 and these schemes remain in force. The designation for each scheme can be found HERE
Gedling’s licence scheme costs £700 per property, reducing to £585 for accredited Landlords.
A licence will last up to for 5 years and the licence fee will need to be paid at the outset of the licence period. The licence fee is paid in two parts; the first payment is paid on submission of the licence application and a balancing payment is payable once a draft licence has been granted. There are license conditions that the council expect license holders to take responsibility for. Here at David James, we can handle these license conditions on your behalf through our comprehensive property management service. If you currently manage your own property and are concerned about the obligations Selective Licensing place upon you, or if your current managing agent is not living up to expectations, then contact us to discuss matters further.
David James would be happy to manage your Selective Licence application. We can collate and submit an application for £120.00 including VAT (£100.00 plus VAT).
