The Licensing Act 2003 allows an individual or business to take over an existing premises licence from the current premises licence holder by applying for a transfer of the licence. A transfer only changes the identity of the holder of the licence and does not alter the licence in any other way. If the licensee wants to vary any of the licensing activities or conditions it will be necessary to apply for a variation of premises licence.
To apply for a transfer we will need to send to the council:
a completed transfer application form
a consent form from the current licence holder or a statement as to why it is not included
a copy of the current premises licence or a statement as to why it is not included
the appropriate fee,
We will also need to send a copy of the application to Licensing Police. Only the police may make representations.
