I have recently just brought a house. the previous owner said he paid TV license yearly and there is 9 months left.

My question is TV license linked to property or the person.

TV licensing.

Yes. You can transfer your TV Licence to someone who is living at your address and is covered by your current licence. However, you will need to give your written permission for us to transfer the licence. Please write to us at:

I reckon you are better off just buying a license for yourself in your own name.Whether anyone thinks we should be charged for watching a tv is another debate. :)

If/when the property becomes unlicensed you'll get several warning letters before anything happens. I would assume you are OK and do nothing for the time being.

He could cancel it and get 75% refunded back to his bank account.

Some people have money to burn. Nice of him to give you £100 though. :-)

Ignore the letters, don't send them back, don't contact TV licensing, don't give them any details. If you are unlucky one of the salesmen will call at your door, tell them you don't have time and immediately close the door.

I've been doing this for years, as have allegedly a few million others.
