starts with getting the right advice...

Sell a Liquor Licence Northern Ireland

Thinking of selling your Liquor Licence?

In order to sell your Liquor Licence it must be "valid & subsisting" as defined in the Licensing (Northern Ireland) Order 1996.

This typically means your Licensed Premises have been :-

          Consistently open & trading

          The Liquor Licence has been fully renewed & is up-to-date

          The Court approved licensing plans match the current premises and;

          Court consent has been approved for all alterations to the premises

Failure to do so could invalidate the Liquor Licence and make it unsellable until such matters are rectified.

Subject to entering into a contract with a purchaser, owners of a Liquor Licence will be expected to continue trading the business as normal until the Licence has been successfully transferred through Court to the purchaser.
