Below are copies of the legal notice about the designation, as well as the selective licensing and voluntary registration reports submitted to Cabinet.

The standards contained in the Cabinet Report have been slightly amended to make them clearer and to further specify some items.


We have also produced a printable document with a general overview of the selective licensing scheme in Page Hall:

 

Selective licensing process

Standards and conditions.

Apply and pay.
 

Update on progress of applications

97% of all licences have been issued apart from any received in the last few days/weeks and where there have been changes of proposed licence holder.

Ownership changes

The licence does not transfer, and so a new application is required.

Management Changes

A management change requires an application to vary the licence.  
We will need a request in writing with a completed fit and proper person form for each new manager.

We have been asked which properties have been licensed, and we have prepared a list of the licensed properties and the valid applications being considered.

Training

All landlords in the Selective Licensing area without suitable existing training have a training requirement as part of licensing conditions.

We are pleased to work with the Residential Landlord Association (RLA) to deliver this training for landlords. We have now completed 9 sessions and received exceptional comments from landlords.

Our last free training was on 26 August 2015 and training is now organised direct through the RLA at their normal terms and conditions. 

Whilst other training is available for landlords to organise themselves separately, this is the only training targeted specifically to the needs of landlords in the Selective Licensing area.

The next session will take place subject to demand.

Exemptions from Selective Licensing

The following common exemptions apply:

  • HMOs that requires a mandatory Licence under Part 2 of the Housing Act 2004
  • a Temporary Exception Notice is in force under Section 86 of the Housing Act 2004
  • a Management Order is in place under Part 4 of the Housing Act 2004
  • the property is let out on a tenancy from a Registered Social Landlord
  • where the property is the subject of a prohibition notice under Section 20 of the Housing Act 2004 (that is not suspended)
  • where we, or another similar organisation, let out the property.
     

The full list of other exemptions are detailed in Statutory Instrument 370, 2006.

Temporary Exemption Notices (TENs) can only be granted upon the death of a Licence Holder, and where an owner notifies us they are taking steps to secure that the house no longer requires a licence - this lasts for 3 months.

Where we receive an application for a TEN, we would only consider granting it, if there is a reasonable prospect the house would not require a licence within the 3 months.

 

Consultation

Prior to the introduction of Selective Licensing, we carried out a widespread consultation in Page Hall.
