A council’s new selective property licensing scheme for rented properties will be live and open for applications from Wednesday November 1.
Ilford council has created an interactive map on its website for landlords to check if they require a licence.
Landlords can also submit applications for a Mandatory HMO or Additional HMO property licence now.
A statement from the council says: “Remember, it’s important to get a property licence, for those with an existing licence, it is important you continue to comply with all the licence conditions.
“Failure to do so, could lead to a financial penalty notice fine of up to £30,000 per offence or prosecution in court, where the fine is unlimited, plus additional sanctions.”
