This applies where a premises licence lapses due to the licensee dying, they become mentally or physically incapacitated, or insolvent. During a period of six months from the date that the licence lapsed, an application can be made to re-instate the Premises Licence, but it has to be made on the appropriate form.
The application will need to include the following:
- Completed application form.
- A scale plan of the premises.
- The existing Premises Licence
- The fee
- The applicant must give notice to some of the responsible authorities
Notice to Responsible Authorities
The applicant has to send a ‘Notice’ to four of the responsible authorities, which are the Gambling Commission, the Police, Customs and Excise and the Local Children’s Safeguarding Board. This must be done within a period of 7 days beginning on the date on which the application is made. There are two forms, one for a single applicant (i.e. individual or company) and one where there are multiple applicants, (i.e. husband and wife).
Matters included in square brackets in the ‘Notice’ are intended to indicate and explain the information to be specified in the notice but are not required to be included in the notice.
Advertising and site notices
There are no requirements to advertise the transfer application or put up site notices.
The application form to transfer a Premises Licence is Form N ‘Application to reinstate a Premises Licence under the Gambling Act 2005’ (is on the right hand side of this page).
Notices to responsible authorities’ forms are Form P for ‘Notice of application to reinstate a Premises Licence - single applicant’ and Form Q for ‘Notice of application to reinstate a Premises Licence - multiple applicants’ (are on the right hand side of this page).
