Licences and standards
Apply for a landlord licence
Part One - fit and proper person check
First, you need to apply for a fit and proper person check using the button below – this will cost you £50 which must be paid upfront and is non-returnable.
Once you’ve submitted your application, we’ll email you with the payment link and a reference number starting with the letters ‘LH’ (be sure to check your Junk or Spam email for this). Please make a note of this reference number as you will need it later.
Part Two - property licence application
If you already have a reference number for your fit and proper person check, you may use the online form below to apply for a property licence.
Please note: A separate licence application must be submitted for each property you wish to licence.
Each application must be made with the full fee - we cannot process applications without a payment. Please make a note of the 'PL' reference number you are given for each application you submit.
