Reminder for landlords to renew registration

Date published: 06 December 2017

Landlords are reminded that it could be time to renew their registration. If they registered in 2014, they will need to check when it expires and re-register, if they are continuing to rent out their properties.

How to register or renew registration

The Landlord Registration Scheme  was introduced in 2014 and the period of registration lasts for three years.  

Landlords can renew their registration eight weeks before the end of their current registration.

A message will be sent to the email address provided by the landlord eight weeks before the end of their current registration.

The landlord needs to check their spam folder in case this email is not delivered to the inbox. 

Alternatively, landlords can check their registration certificate for its expiry date.

Landlords are also reminded to make sure their contact details are up-to-date. 

Landlords can also renew their registration by telephone on 0300 200 7821. They must have full details of any joint owners to hand when making the call.

A landlord who does not register may face a fixed penalty of £500 or a court fine of up to £2,500.
