Part 3 Selective licensing of Other Residential Accommodation Housing Act 2004, Section 80 Public Notice in Respect of Designation of an Area for Selective Licensing Scheme
Notice is hereby given that the London Borough of Harrow in exercise of its powers under Section 80 of the Housing Act 2004 ("the Act") has on the 27th day of May 2021 designated for selective licensing the area of the London Borough of Harrow as delineated and edged red on the Map at Annex A. The designation shall be known as the London Borough of Harrow Designation of an Area for Selective Licensing 2021.
The designation falls within a description of designations for which the Secretary of State has issued a General Approval under section 82 of Housing Act 2004: Licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation and Selective Licensing of Other Residential Accommodation (England) General Approval 2015 dated 26th March 2015. Therefore the designation need not be confirmed and will come into force on the 2nd September 2021 and unless revoked under section 84 of the Act this designation shall cease to have effect on 1st September 2026.
This designation applies to any privately rented property which is let or occupied under a tenancy or licence within the area shown at Annex A.
Landlords, people managing properties and tenants within the designated area should contact the Residential Licensing Team for further advice if they have doubts if as to whether a licence is required for their property. A person having control of or managing a privately rented property within the designated area must apply to the London Borough of Harrow for a license for a fee set by the Authority. If granted the licence shall be valid for a period not exceeding five years from the date of granting of the licence.
Failure to apply for a licence is an offence under Section 95(1) of the Act, for which a person may be liable to prosecution and upon summary conviction liable to unlimited fines. A person who breaches a condition of a licence is liable to prosecution and upon summary conviction liable to a level 5 fine.
For an application to be considered it must provide prescribed particulars and must be accompanied by the required fee, including documentation which the Authority may deem appropriate.
