Private Rented Sector selective licence application deadline extended

16 March 2018 in Housing
Due to unprecedented demand, and after consultation with landlords and property agents, Newham Council has extended the deadline for applications to receive the £400 early bird discount fee for selective property licences.​
​The new deadline is now midnight 29 March 2018. 

The extension has been granted to allow the large numbers of landlords still wanting to license their properties, extra time to prepare and gather all the information they need to make a selective licence application and still benefit from the reduced rate. 

Once the 29 March deadline has passed the regular licence fee will be £750.
