Application for an Interim Authority Notice
The Licensing Act 2003 has special arrangements in place for Premises Licence if the holder:
- dies suddenly
- becomes insolvent
- is mentally incapable
Normally, the licence would lapse in such circumstances. However, this could affect people with interests in the premises, such as:
- an owner
- employees working at the premises
It could also bring unnecessary disruption to customers' plans.
In such cases, you can give us an Interim Authority Notice. An Interim Authority Notice:
- reinstates the Premises licence
- makes the person giving the notice the licence holder
You must submit the Interim Authority Notice within 28 days, from the day after the licence lapsed.
You can contact our Licensing team if you have any questions about Interim Authority Notices.
