Landlord Registration

Tuesday, 30th December, 2014

Landlord registration is a system that helps councils monitor private landlords and ensure that they are suitable people to let out property. Before any person or agency is registered, the council will have to check that the applicant is a fit and proper person to let property. All private landlords now have an obligation to apply to the local council for registration. If they haven't registered, or haven't applied for registration, it's a criminal offence. 

If you are a landlord and you haven't applied to register and you're not exempt from registering you should do so as soon as possible. If the council find out they will contact you and give you a deadline by which you must register. 

If you don't register, the council can send you a Rent Penalty Notice (RPN). Renting out property without being registered with the council is a criminal offence and landlords can be fined up to 50,000 if found guilty.
