Designated Premises Supervisor

A Designated Premises Supervisor – or DPS for short – is required under the standard conditions imposed by the Licensing Act 2003 to be specified on any Premises Licence where sales of alcohol are permitted, before such sales can be undertaken.

Whilst, in the normal operation of your business, this is unlikely to be an ongoing stumbling block to you continuing your trade, it is difficult to know what the future will hold and you may find yourself in a situation where your DPS suddenly leaves employment with the business.

In such circumstances, licenced trade cannot recommence until a new DPS has not only been found and employed but they also must be specified in your Premises Licence via an application to the Local Authority.

When your livlihood comes to a halt you need to know that all due haste and expertise is being applied to getting you back up to full speed and full profitabilty.

Our Testimonials

“Dear Karen,

Thank you very much indeed for all that you, William Brown, and your support team at Hodders have done in connection with this purchase, and with the associated sale of Wallers Haven Barn. There were many times when I thought that we were not going to make one or the other, and it is in very large part down to your persistence that we are exchanged. Your care, patience and attention to detail have been much appreciated.
