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 via the external link at the bottom of the page.

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). This can be paid using our online payment system 

Send to the police:

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

Police address: The Chief Officer of Police, The Licensing Section, Mansfield House, 74 Belgrave Gate, Leicester LE1 3GG or email
