Landlord license for non-HMO

Does anyone know how to get a definitive answer on whether a license is required for letting a property in a certain area. I have looked on the St Albans council website and cannot find a clear list/answer.

Is there a national database somewhere. Seems bizarre the govt wants us to embrace new laws/rules but we cant find out what applies where.

same problem in my area. Check with council themselves

The procedure is very transparent indeed, if in doubt then contact you local (Council) private housing licence department
