Tenants Link

TV licensing

You need to make sure that the property is covered by a valid TV Licence if you have provided a means for your tenants to watch or record television programmes as they’re being shown on TV. This includes the use of devices such as a TV, computer, mobile phone, games console, digital box or DVD/VHS recorder.

The TV Licence is your responsibility if you installed the TV, unless the tenancy agreement specifies that it’s the tenants’ responsibility.

This only applies for tenants and not lodgers (see lodgers page for more information).

It costs £145.50 for colour and £49.00 for a black and white TV Licence.
