Haringey council is introducing a large new Selective Licensing Scheme that comes into force on 17 November 2022.
The new licensing scheme aims to:
– Provide safer and well-managed housing for private renters.
– Ensure landlords take maximum responsibility for maintaining and improving the properties they let.
– Identify and improve properties with the worst efficiency ratings to help reduce fuel poverty.
Who needs to apply for the new property licensing scheme? in which areas?
Any private rented property in the selective licensing zone marker which is let to a single household or two unrelated sharers will need a license.
New licensing fees and early bird discount
The council’s online application was launched on 17 October 2022 and licensing fees for each property is £600.
Those submitting license application by 11:59 on 16 November will benefit from a £250 early bird fee discount.
