Selective licensing - apply for a temporary exemption notice (TEN)

  1. Summary

    You may be eligible to apply for a Temporary Exemption Notice (TEN) if you’re taking steps to take the property out of licensing. For example, you’re selling the property to someone who will live in it as an owner occupier.

    To apply for a second notice, you will need to complete the form again. We will only consider extending the notice if you have exceptional circumstances.
