Licensed property register
Check to see if you need a licence for a home you rent out privately
Check the property licensing map to see if you require a licence for a home you rent out privately within Selective Scheme 2 which includes 12 wards. The 12 wards being Aldborough, Chadwell, Church End, Cranbrook, Fairlop, Goodmayes, Loxford, Mayfield, Newbury, Roding, Seven Kings and Snaresbrook. All properties identified in the red chevron area require a licence. It is an offence to rent out a property to tenants without a licence. If your property is not licensed you must submit an application now to avoid being fined up to £30k or prosecuted.
By law, we must publish a register of licensed private rented properties.
If you are a tenant you can check if the property you are living in has been licensed by searching the register.
Report your property if you think it isn't licensed or that it doesn't comply with the licensing conditions.
