27Licensing appealsE+W

This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1)An applicant for a licence or, as the case may be, the holder of a licence may appeal against the decisions of a licensing authority listed in subsection (2) to a residential property tribunal.

(a)granting a licence subject to a condition, other than the requirement to comply with any code of practice issued by the Welsh Ministers;

(b)refusing an application for a licence;

(c)amending a licence;

(d)revoking a licence.

(3)An appeal—

(b)may be determined having regard to matters of which the licensing authority was unaware.

(4)The tribunal may allow an appeal to be made to it after the end of the appeal period if it is satisfied that there is a good reason for the failure to appeal before the end of that period (and for any delay in applying for permission to appeal out of time).

(5)The tribunal may confirm the decision of the licensing authority or alternatively—

(a)in the case of a decision to grant a licence subject to a condition, direct the authority to grant a licence on such terms as the tribunal considers appropriate;
