Nottingham City Council currently runs 3 licencing schemes
Most privately rented homes in Nottingham now require a licence unless an exemption applies.
If you’re the owner of multiple rented properties you must complete an application for each property.
NEW - Scheme 1 - Selective Licencing (effective from 1 August 2018)
The scheme will come into force on 1 August 2018. If you rent a property in Nottingham you'll probably need a licence. The scheme is estimated to cover over 30,000 privately rented homes in a designated area.
Scheme 2 - Additional Licensing (3 or more occupants, from 2 or more households)
This is a 5 year scheme and is due to finish on the 31st December 2018. The Council is considering introducing a new scheme of Additional Licensing to be implemented from the 1st January 2019 and is consulting on its proposals
It also applies to "converted block of flats" (a building (or part of a building) which has been converted into, and consists of, flats and self-contained flats).
Scheme 3 - Mandatory Licensing (3 or more stories with 5 or more occupants)
This applies to all properties that are 3 or more stories with 5 or more occupants (from more than 1 households– see the definition of households below).
NOTE: The definition for Mandatory Licensing will soon be changing and this means that more properties are likely to fall under the Mandatory Licensing scheme. You should ensure that you keep yourself updated on the changes to legislation.
