ESB Housing Licensing

Product Description

ESB Housing Licensing system provides your authority with an efficient and cost-effective way to manage your applications online from start to finish all in one system. Designed in conjunction directly with local authorities to ensure it's fit for purpose and efficient. Our software will save you time and money allowing you to use it where it's needed.

It allows a comprehensive fully online service to submit and track applications for a Selective, Additional HMO or Mandatory HMO licence as well as continue saved applications. It also allows Scottish authorities to manage short lets licensing.

It enables your customers to view historic licenses and re-download certificates for existing licences and it also provides the legislative public register for licences.

Online payments are taken through your preferred payment provider and can be taken in two parts, one for application and then a payment for the actual license either online through your payment portal provider or there is flow in the system to accommodate you using your internal invoicing system to raise invoices separately and then record them in the Licensing portal system.

Included in the system is a full Housing health and safety rating system (HHSRS) scoring calculator.
