Private rented licensing scheme begins 1 January

The council’s new licensing scheme for private rented properties begins on 1 January 2015. Private sector landlords in Brent are being reminded that they have just one month left to apply. An estimated 15,000-20,000 properties in Brent with need licences, and without one, landlords risk being prosecuted and fined up to £20,000.

By introducing the new scheme, Brent aims to help drive up standards in the private rented sector, ensure there is more good, affordable housing for local people and drive out the minority of bad landlords.

Applications have started to come in and it is expected that numbers will increase significantly over the coming weeks as the start date of the scheme approaches. Landlords can apply online at:
