A Landlord, for the purpose of the legislation, is the person who is entitled to possession of the property. This, in most cases, will be the owner of the property.
A Landlord could be an individual person, a group of people or even a company (depending on how the property is owned). If the property being registered is in joint ownership, one lead owner must register it on behalf of all other owners. If a property is owned by a company, the company registers as the Landlord.
A Landlord registration costs £33.50 if completed online. This is the cost for each Landlord type registering. The cost for registration does not increase if more than one rental property is part of the registration. If someone requests a paper application form to complete instead of doing the registration online it costs £80.50.
