Selective property licensing fees and discounts

Part of: Selective property licensing

The standard fee for a selective licence is £642 for the 5-year duration of the scheme. The fee is split into 2 parts which we collect separately:

  • Part A is £374.50 – this covers administration costs and is due when you submit your application.
  • Part B is £267.50 – this covers enforcement costs and is due once your application is approved. We will not issue licences if the Part B payment is outstanding.

We aim to process applications within 90 days. This period may be longer during the scheme's first year.

We may reduce the length of a licence for incidences of severe or persistent non-compliance.

We also have a range of discounts available. You can claim these discounts in conjunction with each other.
