How to apply

You can apply online to have a premises licence transferred into your name.

You'll need:

  • to know whether you want to apply as an individual, a partnership or a company
  • the existing licence holder's consent to the transfer.  They can complete a consent form online and we will need to receive this with your application

You'll be charged a fee for this application.  Please make sure you are aware of how much this will cost.
