Croydon private rented property licence 2020

This webpage will be used to update you on the Councils proposal to renew the Borough’s selective licensing scheme.

Current position

The council applied to government for a further full borough selective licensing scheme on 20 July 2020. On the 8 June 2021 the Council heard from the Government that the proposed scheme had been refused.  There is no current requirement for landlords to license private rented properties (other than mandatory houses in multiple occupation). The council is now considering the government’s response before deciding on any next steps in the months ahead.   These webpages will be updated shortly to reflect the next steps.
