Transfer a premises licence

Sometimes it is necessary to change the actual holder of a premises licence.  This might happen when, for example, a property is sold.

Applications need to be made by the new person or organisation taking on the licence.

You may also need to apply to change the Designated Premises Supervisor, if you have one.
