Property Licence Checker launches in London

18th November 2020

The Mayor of London has today launched his Property Licence Checker, which will help private renters in London to establish whether their landlord is required to hold a licence to let our their property.

Responding to the news, safeagent’s Chief Executive, Isobel Thomson, said:

“A simple mechanism for landlords, agents and tenants to understand and negotiate the myriad of property licensing schemes is a welcome development, albeit limited to the London rental market. However, based on the answers given, the checker only indicates whether a licence is required and not if a licence has been applied for or approved.

“The success of this initiative depends on the information being accurate and all parties being correctly advised of their legal responsibilities. We would encourage everyone to cross reference the information with each Borough’s website to ensure compliance.”
