Any Lambeth landlords out there?

Hi, Are there any other Lambeth landlords reading this please?

We submitted our licence fee for their additional licensing scheme in January 2022 and haven’t heard a thing since!

I’m now wondering if it is just our application or whether nothing has been done on any application since then.

Please can any other Lambeth landlords post to let us know?

Hi, yes, I had to submit 3 licences and haven't heard back on any. The people at Lambeth council are nice in my experience (even if I don't agree with their policies), try emailing them or calling if you are concerned.

Sorry I don't have any concrete answers but there is a list of licensed Lambeth properties here:

perhaps you can find your property(s) there..

Also, did you receive an acknowledgement of your application; did they take the money?

I believe that Lambeth Council have a massive backlog in issuing HMO Licences.

We submitted a renewal application for one of our HMO's back in July and other than an acknowledgement of our application we've heard nothing.

Previously they would have been in touch within a few weeks to arrange an inspection etc.

We've chased them a few times and have just been told there is a backlog and that in the meantime we are covered in terms of any issues relating to a non licensed property as they are aware the delay is at their end.

I'd suggest making contact with the HMO Licensing Department to confirm your application has been received and is in their system as waiting since January does sound a bit extreme.

Best Regards

Hi Y,

Yes, I'm in the same situation. This is for the additional licensing scheme implemented December 2021.

The team were very helpful when making the application and taking the initial fee.
