Buying in Hexthorpe Doncaster


On the 17th December 2014, Doncaster Council’s cabinet approved the introduction of a selective licensing scheme in Hexthorpe Doncaster. The designation of the whole of Hexthorpe as a selective licensing areas was made on the 1st April 2015, coming into force on the 1st July 2015 and running for 5 years until the 30th June 2020.

This means that any person privately renting out a property to a tenant in Hexthorpe must obtain a license to do so legally. One license for each property/tenant. The 5 year license purchased direct from the council will cost £500 payable up-front with the license application.
