You need to know more about a new licensing scheme, which comes into force on 1st August 2018.
The scheme is called 'Selective Licensing' and aims to raise standards across Nottingham's private rented sector.

The sceme covers 90% of the city and affects areas in the following wards: Arboretum, Bestwood, Bulwell, Bulwell Forest, Basford, Berridge, Bridge, Cliffton North, Clifton South, Dales, Dunkirk and Lenton, Leen Valley, Mapperley, Radford and Park, Sherwood, St Ann's, Wollaton East and Lenton Abbey.
