Part 8 - Housing: Registration of Certain Landlords

Section 93Offences

215.Section 93 provides that a person who is not registered and who lets a house or takes active steps to do so while not registered is committing an offence which is punishable by a fine up to level 5 on the standard scale (currently £5,000). It is a defence to show reasonable excuse. An offence is not committed if the person has applied for registration and the application has not been determined.
