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.

Application forms and notices are available on the government website.

To transfer a licence, please send us:

  • A completed transfer application form
  • Transfer consent form agreeing to the transfer signed by the previous licence holder
  • Your current licence (but please keep the accompanying plan of the premises)
  • Your payment of the current fee (£23). Please note our online payment system below requires a debit card, credit cards are not accepted

Send to the police:

  • a copy of all the documents above
  • a completed police form (available to download below)

Police address:

Leicestershire Police, Force Licensing Department, Mansfield House, 74 Belgrave Gate, Leicester LE1 3GG or email 

Send to the Home Office:

  • a copy of the application form

Home Office address: The Alcohol and Licensing Team, Home Office, Lunar House, 40 Wellesley Road, Croydon, CR9 2BY or email
